In 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.
A gripping tale of human resolve, deploying masterful film making technology and starring Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind is Steven Spielberg's extraordinary film about a man named Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) who becomes obsessed with meeting extraterrestrials after encountering a UFO on an abandoned road one night. Against the wishes of his wife (Teri Garr) and children, Neary, along with another witness to the sighting (Melinda Dillon), travels to a mysterious mountain where the government has built a landing strip hoping to attract the aliens. Director François Truffaut co-stars as Claude Lacombe, one of the organizers of the project. No one who has seen the film has ever looked at a plate of mashed potatoes the same way again.
