Christopher Nolan returns with this thrilling tale of the bravery and sacrifice during ‘Operation Dynamo’ - a daring plan to rescue Allied forces that had been pushed back and surrounded by the German army on the beaches of Dunkirk in Northern France.
In desperate need of assistance a fleet of sea-faring vessels was hastily assembled in England to make the journey across the channel to try and retrieve the troops. As the German army descended on the beach, it was a race against time for the small flotilla to save as many as they could.
With a superb cast including Kenneth Branagh as Commander Bolton, Tom Hardy as an RAF flying ace and Mark Rylance as one of many civilian boat captains determined to do their bit for King and Country.
