Film show: 'Dunkirk', 'Tom of Finland' and 'Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict'

France 24 film critic Lisa Nesselson joins Richelle Harrison Plesse to talk about the latest news from the world of cinema. Hitting the big screen this week is "Dunkirk", a blockbuster war epic from writer and director Christopher Nolan, based on the chaotic evacuation of Allied forces from the beaches of Dunkirk in 1940. Starring Kenneth Brannagh and Tom Hardy, the film is being hailed as Nolan's best work to date and already generating Oscar buzz.

Plus, "Tom of Finland" recounts the life of Finnish artist Touko Laaksonen, whose homoerotic images came to be widely regarded as a major influence on 20th century gay culture.

And a new documentary about art collector Peggy Guggenheim is a fascinating portrait of the woman who collected lovers like she collected modern art masterpieces.
