My Analysis On The Movie "Dunkirk"

* be aware that there may be spoilers*

The other day I had decided to go watch the new movie "Dunkirk" with my boyfriend. I knew the basics about the movie (huge thanks to my granddad for explaining it to me), but all in all, did not know what I was getting myself into. I won't lie and say that I wasn't excited that Harry Styles, aka my boy from One Direction, was also starring in it.

The movie was real. It gave multiple perspectives throughout the movie, and succeeded in showing what it really was like when this event happened. Christopher Nolan, the director, did not hold back. While watching the movie, you can very well tell that he wanted the audience to get the full and true story of what it had been like during that situation. You get a small glimpse of what war is and even how it affects a person, how it traumatizes them. It showed the power of the people and what we are capable of, because we are capable of doing so much good.

Every once in a while, a person needs to be reminded how lucky and blessed they are. This movie does just that, at least it had for me. We are blessed to not be in the situation where there is a draft, and young men at the age of 18 (sometimes even younger), are being sent off to war. They did not know if they would ever be coming home. Some of them had never held a gun in their life. War is real and it is happening today, but in America, we are blessed to have been shielded from the things that those during the World War 1 and World War 2 generation had to see. Us civilians are blessed to not be in places around the world that are having to see those situations every single day. Our military, not just America's, has always had to go through so much, and this movie demonstrates just a little of what they had to go through.

The movie made me think a bit of how lucky I am. The things that we worry about on a daily bases, such as hating going into work, are nothing. The pointless worries are a waste of energy and time, and I wish that we appreciated the lives we had so much more. Things can always be so much worse. Most of us are lucky. Of course, every ones situation is different, but I believe that sometimes a person needs a reminder that life is good.
