I do not expect this to be perfect, but it IS (apparently) a British film and it is about a British subject and a great one at that. Of course, it will be tough to cram the story into just two hours. I would love it if they had made this a multi-parter going from May 10 to June 4. I hope they can at least refer to the very hard fought and sometimes hopeless rearguard battles at Wormhoudt, Calais, Boulogne, Lille (by the French!) and elsewhere which enabled the BEF to reach the sea. I also hope they show the French and show them fairly. (It will be interesting to compare this with the old Belmondo film Weekend at Zuydcote.) I also hope they make the point that it was the big ships at the mole and not the little boats that took off most of the men. Focusing on the Tommies is fine, but I also hope the film shows the vital roles played by the leaders--Gort above all (it was the crisis he was born for), but also Brooke, Adam, Alexander, Monty, etc. I like Branagh, and I think he could make a splendid Ramsay. The appearance of the RAF in the trailer is a good sign. The guys in the trailer look too clean and much too fresh to me, as troops in war movies almost always do; the BEF had been on the move for three weeks by the time they reached the perimeter, and everyone was collapsing with fatigue. I'll say this about the trailer though; it does convey the terror of air attack. Oh yes--I pray that Lightoller is in it.
