Synopsis

The disturbing reality of modern-day piracy is explored in this gripping action thriller, based on a true story, about the 2009 seizure of the Maersk Alabama. It was the first American-flagged cargo ship to be hijacked in 200 years. Adapted from the memoir of the vessel’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips, the fast-moving tale bristles with tension, as it depicts Phillips’s sharp-witted battle for survival after Somali pirates board the Maersk Alabama during its journey to Kenya. Led by the determined Muse, these hard-boiled bandits are interested in the big money they can get from kidnapping Westerners, forcing Phillips to offer himself as their hostage to save his crew.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
