Q (UK) - - Girl Ray -

When Dunkirk came away from this year’s Os­cars with three Academy Awards, it wouldn’t have come as a sur­prise to any­one who has ex­pe­ri­enced Christo­pher Nolan’s spec­tac­u­lar World War II epic that two of the stat­uettes (for Best Sound Edit­ing and Best Sound Mix­ing) were for its pi­o­neer­ing work in sound. More so than in any of his other films, Nolan’s vir­tu­os­ity as a di­rec­tor, the mas­ter­ful use of sound and long-term col­lab­o­ra­tor Hans Zim­mer’s nerve-shred­ding score came to­gether to cre­ate a pow­er­ful, im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence. Its mu­sic and au­dio played a cru­cial role in in­ten­si­fy­ing the spi­ralling ten­sion as al­most 340,000 Al­lied soldiers, under fire from the ad­vanc­ing Ger­man army, were evac­u­ated across the English Chan­nel. From 4 May, you can en­joy Dunkirk’s fives­tar bril­liance on de­mand ex­clu­sively on Sky Cin­ema (also avail­able in UHD for Sky Q Mul­tiscreen cus­tomers). Feel each emo­tion­ally-charged mo­ment slowly count down as the in­ter­twin­ing nar­ra­tive threads fol­low the ag­o­nis­ing ex­pe­ri­ences of the soldiers on the beach, the spit­fire pi­lots over­head and the res­cue ef­forts of the or­di­nary cit­i­zens who crossed the Chan­nel to help in the res­cue. So pull your sofa up close, hook the TV up to the stereo and lose your­self in Sky Cin­ema – the best way to watch your favourite movies at home. With a brand new pre­miere added every day*, all you have to do is sit back, pick a film and en­joy the finest cin­ema has to of­fer, when­ever you want.

Com­mon: he’d got into a row with a par­tic­u­larly stub­born seag­ull.

Hats off to Ken­neth Branagh as Com­man­der Bolton.
