Dunkirk

1958

Directed By

Leslie Norman

Synopsis

Dunkirk follows the dramatic events in 1943 leading up to Operation Dynamo, where upon the British Army attempted to rescue its soldiers and allied troops from Occupied France as the Germans closed in. Seen from the dual perspectives of a jaded journalist in search of propaganda and a weary soldier desperately trying to give his troop some hope, Dunkirk never shies away from the brutality of war and the bravery of its soldiers.

Directed by Leslie Norman (The Long, The Short And The Tall), starring John Mills (Ice Cold In Alex, Goodbye Mr Chips, Great Expectations) Richard Attenborough (Brighton Rock, The Great Escape) and a cast featuring genuine army officers, Dunkirk is one of the most authentic representations of conflict during World War II.
