This Week at the Movies... Captain Phillips

November 1, 2013
Traer Star-Clipper

Showing this weekend at the Traer Theatre is the new action/adventure movie Captain Phillips. Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container shop Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is - through director Paul Greengrass' directive lens - simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips' unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control. This movie is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 134 minutes.
