From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) comes the epic action World War II thriller about the evacuation of Allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk before Nazi forces can take hold. Featuring Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh with Mark Rylance co-starring, with longtime Nolan collaborator Hans Zimmer providing the score.
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.
