Lefty Lunacy: Dunkirk film is not ‘diverse’ enough


A film critic has been left high and dry after moaning that there were not enough women and “actors of colour” in World War II blockbuster Dunkirk.

USA Today’s Brian Truitt said that he was disappointed “that there are only a couple of women and no lead actors of colour” which may “rub some the wrong way”.

One wise wag on Twitter mocked “’Historical accuracy… how dare they!’”

In a masterpiece that has even had muesli munchers at The Guardian commending its “architectural expression of doomed homeward yearning”, this loony is thankfully in a minority of one.
