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.
Contains moderate violence and threat.
