Director: Christopher Nolan ● Starring: Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and 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.
PLUS a BRIT School Showcase film in our new partnership with the School's Film & Media Production department. A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month. For October we expect this to be Cycliste De Reve (4 mins), directed by Caleb Pithers-Gregory. The story of a boy's efforts to gain a new bicycle recently won the school's Best Year 12 Short Film Award.
With two screenings at 2.30pm* and 7.30pm.
*(Please note that the 2.30pm screening will be subtitled for those with hearing loss.)
