This action-thriller historical fiction movie was written, directed, and co-produced by the prestigious Christopher Nolan. You might have heard of the other movies he directed as well such as The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, and many other successful films. He is one of the most acclaimed directors in the 21st century of the film-making industry. Right now, we are up to see another one of his masterpieces: Dunkirk.
During World War 2 in May 1940, the German Military was sent to France in the Dunkirk beaches where they trapped the Allied troops. It is going to be a bloody event, yet the British and French troops created a strategy to slowly but surely evacuate the members of the Allied troops through are and ground covers with naval and civilian vessels. By the end, they were successful as 330,000 soldiers were evacuated safely.
The casting of the movie did not come about by merely picking actors. They have to undergo a lot of processes too. In fact, the main character which is played by Fionn Whitehead had to go through months of auditioning processes! Other characters include Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles (Fun fact: Nolan didn’t even know that he is a singer!) and much more.
What To Expect
The suspense going on in Dunkirk is one of the many attributes a lot of viewers praised the movie for. At the same time, we will be reminded on how hard these brave heroes have fought for our peace and freedom, so please bring some tissues along! To get the full experience of the movie, immerse in every scene accompanied by the vibe of the music. Take note that elements in the movie—musical score, the cinematography, screenplay, and direction—received critical acclaim! Some of the critics even perceive Dunkirk as one of the greatest war films and that this is the finest work of Christopher Nolan so far.
