Kenneth Branagh IS Boris Johnson in “This Sceptered Isle”

Michael Winterbottom, one of my favorite directors, leaves behind Coogan and Bryson “Trip” comedies and gets back to the political thrillers he’s best at with this upcoming film.

He did “Welcome to Sarejevo,” “The Road to Guantanamo” and “A Mighty Heart” before Coogan, Brydon and he did “Tristram Shandy” and all those “Trip” movies — “Greed.”

Damn, Sir Ken is a DEAD ringer for ol’ BJ, wot wot?

“This Sceptered Isle,” a scheduled British TV series, is about the unlikely turn that brought Britain to Brexit and the journalist, provocateur, politician and TV guest “clown” on many a show, including “Top Gear,” Boris Johnson’s rise to prime minister.
