Solari Movie of the Year 2017: 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.”
