Join us on Thursday, March 1 for an evening discussing the films nominated for this year’s Oscars at the Curzon Mayfair with The Times film critics Kevin Maher and Ed Potton.

Our film critics Kevin Maher and Ed Potton will share their thoughts on the highs and lows of the last year in film and give their predictions on which films and talent they feel deserve an Academy Award. You'll also get the chance to put your questions to them and hear their inside information on the world of film.

After the discussion we'll be screening Darkest Hour the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.

The film tells the story of the early days of World War II. With the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright and in cinemas from January 12.

There will be a cash bar available before the talk and the film begin.
