The OBVIOUS winner for Best Adapted Screenplay in my opinion. If this doesn't win that category, I'll eat my shoe (or whatever the expression is) At the end of the movie, it's the first time I found myself giving full credit and respect to the screenwriter for keeping me guessing and satisfying me fully the entire length of the movie. Hats off to the shopkeep (well, that's definitely not the appropriate expression here but whatever) It's the first film I've seen in YEARS that's made me want to read the novel IMMEDIATELY after the film (the last film to do this was American Pie 3, I think) Not only is the movie breathtakingly beautiful to look at (the one continuous rolling shot at the Dunkirk beach will numb your mind), but it also packs one heck of an emotional punch. Not my favourite movie of the year, but certainly my pick for winning the Best Picture Oscar. Most definitely recommended. The only reason I can't give this a perfect rating is because the performances are TOO professional. I can't really explain it. I was just simply far more moved by the story than the performances. Especially the younger sister who I thought offered no depth to her role.
