Dunkirk continues to gain praise from both audiences and critics and it’s great to see Christopher Nolan showing such an important moment of World War 2 on the big screen. Of course, the war has been interpreted many times for the cinema, from different angles, for different purposes and to differing degrees of success.

The dad-of-two has also found time to direct the drama The Book Of Henry starring Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher and Jacob Tremblay. It tells the story of a mother who’s given instructions by her precocious son on how to rescue the girl next door from her abusive stepfather. Here, the American film-maker talks about what drew him to the project, how he feels about the critical reception, and rewriting Episode 9 following Carrie Fisher’s death. Is it true you were being fought over by Steven Spielberg for Jurassic World and the producers of The Book Of Henry? I think it (the fight) was internally, mostly in my own head. I was fighting over my desire to tell this story, which was very strong. I know there was something elemental in this that just grabbed on to me; the idea of the legacy of a child would be to save another child who’s in danger and to carry on the deeds of another. And yet Jurassic World was an extraordinary opportunity. It was Jurassic Park 4 at the time and my first instinct was, “let’s not call it Jurassic Park 4, let’s make it something new for younger people who want to be introduced to this”. It felt like it was something, obviously, worth doing. So the producers of this film understood I had to go and take that opportunity and I promised I would come back and make this movie when I’m done and they said, “No you won’t, you’re going to be on a boat somewhere, you’re not going to care”, and they were wrong.

The Book Of Henry
