You can all breathe a sigh of relief, our boy Harry is supposedly quite good in Dunkirk. The former One Direction heartthrob was the object of some derisive jibes when it was announced last year that he was cast in Christopher Nolan‘s World War II epic. OBVIOUSLY he was brought in to get teenyboppers (and creepy old queens) into the theater. There’s no way in hell he could actually, you know, ACT. But the reviews are trickling in and it seems to be unanimous: Harry TRIUMPHS in his first big role. Whew!
I’m predicting OSCARS ALL AROUND!

#Dunkirk is an astonishing piece of work. Bold. Breathtaking. Intense. A phenomenal war film. And, yes, Harry Styles can act. A triumph.

Dunkirk: an immense achievement. (And Harry Styles is really good.)

And for those asking: Harry Styles does well in DUNKIRK, was pleasantly surprised.
