Dunkirk (Benedict Cumberbatch) - Preview


Preview by Jack Foley

MAY 1940 saw the biggest evacuation in military history, with in excess of 330,000 allied troops rescued from Dunkirk with the help of British civilians working side by side with the armed forces in an amazing show of compassion and solidarity.

Now this true, awe-inspiring story is told in the outstanding BAFTA-winning BBC docu-drama Dunkirk, which arrives on DVD courtesy of Arrow Films.

Narrated by Timothy Dalton (Licence to Kill) and starring a stellar all-star cast including Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), Simon Russell Beale (Penny Dreadful), Michael Legge (Shameless), Phil Cornwell (Jericho), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Richard Attlee (My Week With Marilyn), as his grandfather Clement Attlee, this fascinating film portrays real characters based on first-hand accounts of the event.

Originally airing on BBC Two, Dunkirk was the result of extensive research which unearthed previously untold personal accounts of what really happened. This eye-opening three-hour factual production will be available for its first solo release on DVD on July 10, 2017.

Told from the perspective of the decision makers and the soldiers, sailors and civilians caught up in the events of those desperate days, Dunkirk follows the race against time to save the Allied armies trapped in France.
