Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
Christopher Nolans epic war film depicts the Dunkirk landings of allied forces in 1940. Nominated for the Golden Globes and Critics choice awards as well as highly predicted for a 2018 Oscar, the film captures the intensively terrifying nature of war from the perspective of the brave forces on board ships in cramped conditions crossing treacherous seas facing air bombardment from the dark spaces within the vessels. Starring little known Fionn Whitehead and Glyn Carney alongside Jack Lowden and Harry Styles (one direction), these young actors cross swords with the experienced Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Tom Clancy. The films focus is on witnessing the scenes rather than the intensity of dialogue and relationships which often sanitize war movies, not always allowing the full appreciation of the horror of experience.
Movingly realistic and unsentimental - amazing cinematography

Christopher Nolan writes and directs this war drama that tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation during the Second World War. In May 1940, in the early days of the Second World War, hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers are trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk after being pushed back by the German army during the Battle of France, prompting a massive rescue operation to evacuate them. As the evacuation, code-named Operation Dynamo, gets underway, the soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force holds a shrinking position as the Nazi's advance upon them. Meanwhile, civilian sailors back home are called upon to use whatever vessels they have to aid the rescue effort across the Channel and the Royal Air Force tries to defend the vulnerable troops on the ground from the skies. The ensemble cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Harry Styles.
