Highly an­tic­i­pated thriller to hit the screen

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

SHOW­ING this week in Bowen is the Sec­ond World War thriller Dunkirk.

This 2017 ver­sion comes from ac­claimed director Christo­pher Nolan.

The plot cen­tres around the 1940 evac­u­a­tion of more than 300,000 Al­lied troops from the French city of Dunkirk be­fore Nazi forces can take hold.

Events are por­trayed from three dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives – land, sea and air.

The star-stud­ded cast in­cludes Tom Hardy, Ken­neth Branagh and Mark Ry­lance, with long­time Nolan col­lab­o­ra­tor Hans Zim­mer pro­vid­ing the score.

Crit­ics have so far posted

glow­ing re­views on so­cial me­dia.

“Chaotic, re­lent­less, thrilling and one of the most cap­ti­vat­ing movies you will see this year” is just one of the ways the film has been de­scribed.

Nolan’s films are gen­er­ally among the most highly an­tic­i­pated, whether they’re twist-heavy thrillers, su­per­hero block­busters or sci-fi spec­tac­u­lars and Dunkirk is said to be un­like any­thing seen from him be­fore.
