Captain Phillips Sea Trek: Into Darkness
Plot In April 2009, US container ship the Maersk Alabama was boarded by four Somali pirates who took its captain, one-time Boston cabbie Richard Phillips, hostage. The crisis played out over five days, and this film recreates those events. Verdict Both Greengrass and Hanks are on award-deserving form in a riveting, emotionally complex and hugely intelligent dramatisation of a real-life ordeal. Reviewed by Dan Jolin
