Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jul 23rd at 4:55pm for Dunkirk at the Regal Gallery Place. Look for Brian F. wearing a black t-shirt and seersucker shorts in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
n May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.
