DUNKIRK / THE BIG SICK - podcast review out now

We have a double bill episode this week, and first up is Christopher Nolan's historical war film Dunkirk. Telling the story through three different time lines, we look at how the British pulled off Operation Dynamo and evacuated thousands of troops. Starring Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Fionn Whitehead and Harry Styles, and featuring music by Hans Zimmer, Dunkirk is a bleak film, but is it entertaining enough. Next is The Big Sick, a romantic comedy starring Kumail Nanjiani and telling his own real life story of how he met his wife Emily V. Gordon. Kumail has to deal with his Muslim family who want to arrange a marriage for him, but unfortunately his secret girlfriend Emily falls into a coma. Produced by Judd Apatow and also starring Holly Hunter and Ray Romano, we wonder if The Big Sick breaks the mould of romantic comedies.

We discuss Rogue One briefly in this podcast. You can listen to our review of this here.

We mention Layla's article "The Manosphere and Romance" in our review of The Big Sick. You can read that here.
