Event description

Description

Join us for a screening of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” which many have called his greatest work and one of the best depictions of World War II to date. Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, and Harry Styles, the film centers around the evacuation of Dunkirk, France in 1940. Also referred to as Operation Dynamo or the Miracle of Dunkirk, the operation recovered Allied troops who had been cut off and surrounded by German soldiers on the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk. Peter Travers, writing for Rolling Stone, declares that “Nolan has, without sentimentality or sanctimony, raised the [war movie] genre to the level of art.”

The program will begin promptly at 6 PM on the second floor of the library. Please be advised that seating is first come, first served, so we recommend arriving early!
