To launch our 2018/19 season we have two films showing different aspects of World War II.
First is Dunkirk – ‘When 400,000 men couldn’t get home, home came for them.’
With amazing cinematography, we get a glimpse of this astounding evacuation story through the eyes of one of the stranded soldiers, two RAF pilots, and the civilian crew of one of the small rescue boats.
Written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Starring Fionn Whitehead, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh. The film won three Oscars.
