(2013) Directed by Paul Greengrass. Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman. (134 min.) PG-13
The almost unbearably tense true story of the first American cargo ship hijacked in 200 years pits a ragtag group of Somali pirates with nothing to lose against Captain Phillips, desperately attempting to keep his crew alive.
“Even as Greengrass’s signature kinetic style renders us nearly seasick and emotionally spent from the action, it’s the work of Tom Hanks that makes this film unforgettable” (Chicago Sun-Times).
