We all had something to say about the epic passion project Dunkirk, the 2017 war film written, directed, and produced by Christopher Nolan that depicts the Dunkirk evacuation of World War II. Pat took point to break down how grand this grand spectacle really was.
In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated. Starring Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh, and Cillian Murphy.
