DUNKIRK (M) The epic weight of an un­bear­able wait US-UK, 105 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - WATCH -

This is what a mas­ter­piece looks like. Sounds like. Feels like. It is late May 1940 in the small French coastal town of Dunkirk. An es­ti­mated 400,000 Al­lied troops have been penned in by the Ger­mans on a beach. If this un­prece­dented mass evac­u­a­tion is to be suc­cess­ful, it will take a mir­a­cle. This film is the grip­ping, trans­fix­ing chron­i­cle of that mir­a­cle. Ac­claimed direc­tor Christo­pher Nolan ( In­cep­tion) has crafted a com­plete vi­sion here. A vi­sion that not only cap­tures the sweep­ing his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of the sub­ject at hand, but also its in­ti­mate hu­man essence. Stars Fionn White­head, Mark Ry­lance, Tom Hardy.
