BECOMING DE GAULLE
A visionary from an early age
General Charles de Gaulle is a multi-faceted man. There is the savior, a leading figure in French history during WWII. There is the intimate man who cuddled his trisomic daughter, loved the simplicity of family life, and always needed Yvonne, the woman of his life.
And then there is the lesser-known side of the man, a visionary even from an early age.
This film tells the story of young Charles becoming General de Gaulle and the many challenges he imposed on himself. The story begins on November 22, 1890, and ends on June 18, 1940, in London.
