on my mind: According to Writer and Director Christopher Nolan, the original ending was supposed to be the shot of the burning Spitfire on the beach. Nolan changed his mind after watching dailies of Fionn Whitehead (Tommy). In an interview with his brother Jonathan, he said, "At the end, (Fionn) did this thing where he just, I don't even know what he's doing, but you want to end with this quiet moment with him, where no one's paying attention to him and Alex is eating and drinking stuff the girls are handing through the window. It brings you back to this personal moment. He's trying to process the words he's just read from this very eloquent politician and trying to reconcile that with his experience. Hopefully, the audience is trying to do the same thing, through his eyes. So it comes back to a very small thing."
