Ben Mendelsohn was in one of my all-time favourite films, The Year My Voice Broke. A brilliant film.Darkest Hour.
Excellent. Gary Oldman deservedly won an Oscar for his portrayal of Churchill. What I really liked about his performance was his refusal to "mimic" the great man; he put his own subtle spin on Churchill's mannerisms and speech, which for me made it so much more tangible. And just quietly, a gem of a performance by one of my favourite Aussie actors, Ben Mendelsohn, as His Majesty King George VI.
