SJW LIFE IMITATES SJW SATIREShot:

dunkirk

Shona Lomu from the Diamantina chapter of the Society For Comfortable Upper Class White Feminist Creatives says she’s quite disappointed more women weren’t included in the cast, even as extras.

While Dunkirk serves up an emotionally satisfying spectacle, delivered by a writer-director in full command of his craft and brought to life by a gifted ensemble cast that honors the fact-based story – I still think the film was a bit white boy-heavy” she said.

“We understand what happened at Dunkirk predominantly involved Caucasian men with British accents – but surely they could have squeezed Amy Schumer in there somewhere”

Chaser:

“Dunkirk”is a great movie but there aren’t enough “women” or “people of color” in it, according to a review in USA Today.

The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nail-biting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940.

But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality:

The trio of timelines can be jarring as you figure out how they all fit, and the fact that there are only a couple of women and no lead actors of color may rub some the wrong way.

Yes, it’s true that Dunkirk’s leading roles are indeed dominated by white European males.

But one possible reason for this is that Dunkirk was an actual historical event which director Christopher Nolan has gone to considerable trouble to recreate as accurately as possible.
