Dunkirk – A Roundtable Reactions Podcast On Christopher Nolan’s Latest Film

Christopher Nolan’s latest film focuses on the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the British Empire and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army on the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 26- June 04, 1940, during World War II. The film focuses on three distinct timelines and elements to this event – the men on the beach fighting for their lives, the pilots engaged with the enemy in the air, and the brave civilians who risked life and limb to save these men.

For this special episode, Aaron and Scott sat down with community members Scott and Emily Calgaro to discuss Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Dunkirk. A noted history buff, Scott Calgaro elaborates on many of the events in the film as we each discuss our likes and dislikes of the choices Nolan made to bring his vision to the screen. From dog-fighting to capsizing, everything is on deck as dive deep into Dunkirk.
