Dunkirk has been named by many as the movie of the year, and after watching it I can understand why.
Written and Directed by Christopher Nolan, the movie is all historical fiction, based on the events that occurred on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, as the Germans invaded the land and the British tried to evacuate.
The storylines though are mostly made up, and the film focuses on three different stories, one each by land, sea, and air.
Each of these stories plays out over a different length of time (one hour, one day, and one week), joining together as the movie reaches its climax.
While the movie doesn’t have a lot of dialogue, instead it delivers the story with large scenic views and great music.
To top it off it has a great cast that includes Fionn Whitehead, James D’Arcy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, and One Direction’s Harry Styles.
The visuals carry this movie along, and whilst I usually hate dramas and epics, this one is a great movie and really enjoyable, and gets a 9.5 out of 10.
