Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship, Maersk Alabama, by a crew of Somali pirates. Based on a true story, the film focuses on the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. The two men are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips’ unarmed ship. In the ensuing standoff, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control. Run time is 134 minutes.
