With the timeline I know I can get more out of a second viewing.

Maybe the dialogue issue was with the sound in your theater? I could hear what was being said without issue.

It looked like a lot of small boats to me, and to rescue that amount of people it had to be. I don't think that was lost on anyone.

Does anyone know if the story of the boy who died after being pushed by the polite is true?

Perhaps - it was extremely difficult to understand.

Watched this last night, intense film non stop action. The music score was amazing. I really enjoyed it.

I agree. Watched it the other night and was disappointed. I am no history buff and basically unfamiliar with the Dunkirk rescue, but the movie had me mostly confused.

It was a hoot seeing Tommy Shelby and Kurt Wallander and other familiar faces in the movie.

For a second there, I thought that my wife and I were the only two people who didn't like this movie

There are multiple others on this thread that didn't care for the movie at all, myself included.

Default Dunkirk on Nova (PBS)

Wish I had watched the Nova episode on Dunkirk before watching the movie. It would have helped this dummy make more sense of the movie.........
