Movie Reviews

Dunkirk comes from the mind and talent of director Christopher Nolan who is well-known for the blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy along with Interstellar and Memento. Here, Mr. Nolan is taking of the famed battle of Dunkirk a significant setback to British forces who find themselves forced off of the European continent, literally driven to the sea by the onslaught of the German army. Against this backdrop several different characters emerge to tell different aspects of this non-linear story including a pilot played by Tom Hardy, an emotionally damaged soldier played by Cillian Murphy, a non-military boat owner played by Academy Award winner Mark Rylance and several young soldiers trapped on the beach, one played by One Direction singer Harry Styles.
