Acclaimed auteur Christopher Nolan directs this World War II thriller about the evacuation of Allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk before Nazi forces can take hold. Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance co-star, with longtime Nolan collaborator Hans Zimmer providing the score.
Insider’s tip: “The surpassing accomplishment of Dunkirk is to make us feel an almost literal fusion with its story. It’s not so much that we’ve seen a splendid movie, though we have, but as if we’ve been taken inside a historic event, become wholly immersed in something real and alive” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times). Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, adds: “It’s one of the best war films ever made, distinct in its look, in its approach and in the effect it has on viewers. There are movies — they are rare — that lift you out of your present circumstances and immerse you so fully in another experience that you watch in a state of jaw-dropped awe. Dunkirk is that kind of movie.” Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal: “In Dunkirk, an astonishing evocation of a crucial event during the first year of World War II, Christopher Nolan has created something new in the annals of war films—an intimate epic.”
