May/June 1940. 400,000 British soldiers are holed up in the French port town of Dunkirk. The only way out is via sea, and the Germans have air superiority, bombing the British soldiers and ships without much opposition. The situation looks dire and, in desperation, Britain sends civilian boats to try to evacuate the beleaguered forces. This is that story, seen through the eyes of a soldier amongst those trapped forces, two RAF fighter pilots and a group of civilians on their boat, part of the evacuation fleet.

The fantastic cast includes Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy.


Visceral, immersive, intense, involving, harrowing, powerful, unforgettable… These are some of the adjective to describe Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, whose explosive action is condensed into a powderkeg of a movie. Nolan has taken a non-linear approach, using time as a tool to incorporate a holistic approach, grappling with three story strands – on land, sea and in the air. During the tight 106 minute running time, our emotions are tightly coiled and the film’s massive scale is countered by the minutiae that it perfectly showcases.”  Urban Cinefile

Dunkirk the event may have been “a colossal military disaster” according to Churchill, but Dunkirk the movie is a glorious, breathtakingly vivid triumph from a director at the top of his game.”  Radio Times
