A luminous Lee Remick stars as the mother of Sir Winston Churchill in this award-winning British miniseries seen on PBS. Written by playwright Julian Mitchell, who drew on private letters and papers from the Churchill family, it's a captivating portrait of a spirited American woman.

For her effervescent performance, Oscar and Tony Award nominee Lee Remick (Days of Wine and Roses, The Omen) won the best actress Golden Globe and BAFTA Award, as well as an Emmy nomination.
