Dunkirk is a 2017 American-British-French-German World War II film directed by Christopher Nolan that tells the story of the evacuation of surrounded British, Belgian and French troops from Dunkirk in 1940 (Operation Dynamo). The film's cast includes Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Cillian Murphy and One Direction member Harry Styles. Frequent Christopher Nolan collaborator Michael Caine has a cameo role as the radio voice of "Fortis Leader", which perhaps is a nod to his role in the 1969 movie Battle of Britain. The story had previously been told in a similarly-named 1958 film Dunkirk.
Note: The screenshots seen here will be of varying sizes due to the change in aspect ratio throughout the film.

Vickers K machine guns are fitted to British Motor Torpedo Boats. This is potentially anachronistic because as a general rule Motor Torpedo Boats at the time were fitted with ground pattern Lewis Guns, not being replaced with the Vickers K until 1942. The actual boat used during production is MTB 102 which was actually present during the real Dunkirk evacuation (acting as the flagship for Rear Admiral Wake-Walker), and is, in fact, the sole surviving Royal Navy vessel that participated in the operation.
