Dunkirk: Christopher Nolans WWII Epic Utilizes Unconventional Structure

Christopher Nolan is set to write and direct his new movie, Dunkirk, which tells the story of a significant event that took place World War 2 in the eyes of three different British soldiers. Each solider was a part of a different unit, Tom Hardy being a pilot, the other, Harry Styles, being a land fighter, and Mark Rylance and Cillian Murphy as being a part of the Navy. Nolan has managed to write this film in a way that allows viewers to understand history through different perspectives, making the storyline sound complicated, although it was very simple. Nolan mentions that he did this in order to ensure authenticity within the film to portray the importance of the events that took place in World War 2. In his own words, “this is en essential moment in the history of the Second World War”. We’re ecstatic about the film, hoping to not only get entertainment from the movie but also simultaneously learn about a great moment in history. The film comes out in theaters on the 21st of July in 2017.
