By Zachary Brenner

If you haven't seen Christopher Nolan's new movie Dunkirk yet, you need to rectify that problem immediately. It tells the story of the evacuation of 400,000 British soldiers from the French city of Dunkirk in 1940. The movie is getting universal praise and currently sits at 92% on Rotten Tomatoes

One moviegoer had a very unique experience while watching Dunkirk. Ken Sturdy was actually there in 1940. When he was just 20 years old, he served in the Royal Navy and assisted with the evacuation. Global News spoke to him as he was leaving the theater.
