Dunkirk (2017 UK/Netherlands/France/USA) Cert. 12A

Director: Christopher Nolan           
Stars: Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh

In May 1940 German forces rapidly advanced deep into northern France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk.

 

 

 

An heroic evacuation mission, using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found, was mounted to rescue 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers.

 

 

 

This meticulous yet thrilling recreation by Nolan (Memento, Inception, Interstellar and the Dark Knight trilogy) puts a group of soldiers awaiting evacuation in the centre of a vast canvas, with a striking blend of youth and experience amongst his all-British cast.

 

Here is a link to the Review in The Guardian 

The review does not have a link to a Trailer, but does include an extended interview with Nolan on the making of the film.  Meanwhile, the ‘official main’ Trailer can be seen below

News Update 23 July 2017

We had a very enjoyable party for our volunteers in the Braithwaite Hall on Friday night. These dedicated people are the mainstay of the Campaign, and it was good to be able to acknowledge the work they do ensuring that our screenings run smoothly. We are always on the lookout for more help, so if you are interested please see the volunteers page.

Last week’s films proved very popular. In the case of My Cousin Rachel, this was hardly surprising – both screenings sold out. A well-made version of a classic English novel, this was always likely to please. It was interesting to hear that Rachel Weisz had decided before filming whether her character was ‘guilty’ or not, and played the role with this decision in mind, without telling the director. With Destiny (Der müde Tod), programming a silent film is always a risk, but this paid off, with a good audience enjoying this wonderful tale of a woman’s attempts to cheat the Grim Reaper. Weary Death himself was portrayed as not really enjoying his job, although finally there was no way of escaping him! Read more….
