Movie of the Year

Dunkirk

        “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.~ Sir Winston Churchill

Christopher Nolan’s 2017 blockbuster tells the story of Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France surrounded by the German Army who were evacuated by a hastily assembled fleet of over 800 boats, including British destroyers, Royal Canadian destroyers, and a flotilla of hundreds of merchant marine boats, fishing boats, yachts and pleasure boats, and lifeboats called into service from Britain.

Dunkirk speaks to a time when real trouble comes, reminding us of the culture that can face and overcome adversity. The movie tag line is worth taking to heart – “hope is a weapon.”
