Hope is a weapon. Survival is victory.
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. Acclaimed auteur Christopher Nolan directs this World War II thriller. Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance co-star, with longtime Nolan collaborator Hans Zimmer providing the score.

"The tension starts from minute one and doesn't let up until the credits roll in "Dunkirk," Christopher Nolan's terse, nerve-jangling WWII drama." - New York Post
" has managed to combine the epic and the intimate. We are a long way from next year's Oscars but Dunkirk must surely already be a frontrunner." - Independent UK
