When 400,00 men couldn't get home, home came for them.
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.

"Nolan has crafted a tight, gripping, deeply involving and unforgettable film that ranks about the best war movies of the decade." - Sun Times
"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
