Trailer Trash! – Darkest Hour

Wartime drama probably won’t come with as much gravitas this year as Darkest Hour, a Churchillian flick starring cinematic chameleon Gary Oldman in the title role as Britain’s most iconic Prime Minister (sorry, Maggie). Co-starring Ben Mendelsohn, Kristen Scott Thomas and Lily James, Darkest Hour (not to be confused with the Russian-set alien-invasion film of a similar name from a few years back) looks to be yet another possible Oscar-contending performance by an actor this year – and a darn fine film to boot.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
