Dunkirk: the Hard-Hitting War Film of 2017

Dunkirk was released in July and has been causing a stir in cinemas across the UK. It features incredibly hard-hitting content and is very graphic, making it a difficult yet compelling watch, as viewers get caught up in the story and the action. It uses a small amount of dialogue and we don’t really get to know the characters especially well. However, the special effects and thousands of extras make it scarily realistic.

Dunkirk has an interesting mix of actors playing its major roles. One actor who has caused some raised eyebrows is Harry Styles, the former One Direction singer who makes his film debut in this role. However, critics have actually given some very positive reviews of Styles’s performance. Other actors in the film include Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard and Barry Keoghan.

The film was produced and written by Christopher Nolan and will be showing in cinemas throughout August.
