Synopsis: Director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception) recounts the true story of how, in 1940, during the early days of World War II, hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers from Britain, Belgium and Canada find themselves trapped on the beach of the French coastal town of Dunkirk as they face an impossible crisis. Cut off and surrounded by ruthless German Nazi troops, over the course of eight days, these soldiers struggle to survive in the hope of beings rescued.
Technically awe-inspiring, narratively inventive and thematically complex, Dunkirk reinvigorates its genre with a war movie that is both harrowing and smart. -Globe and Mail
Both intimate and epic, as emotional as it is tension-filled, it is being ballyhooed as a departure for bravura filmmaker Christopher Nolan, but in truth the reason it succeeds so masterfully is that it is anything but. -Los Angeles Times
