Captain Phillips - 7pm at the Mall

Captain Phillips is director Paul Greengrass's multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is – through Greengrass's distinctive 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 his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control. The film is directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty.

The movie starts at 7, so we'll meet at the couches at 6:30 and get seats by 6:45.

    Another great Tom Hanks performance. The young man who played Muse also did very well as the Somali pirate captain.

    Sorry I missed it guys. I learned that a group in Baltimore I learned flash mob with is doing Thriller. So I did the first class of it. Hope to learn it well enough to pass for Finn at homecoming. (Not much of a dancer).
    Maybe I'll schedule a make-up showing as I see Leah missed it. I'm sure it was excellent.

      He'll have competition for Robert Redford from what I hear--his new sailing movie. Film sounds like it's form might have parallels to Gravity.

    Thank you! I am so sorry, but a short nap turned into a long nap that made me miss the movie. I'm so bummed. Hopefully I can make another one soon.

    I'm new to the area. Where is the best place to park for the theater?

      There's a large parking garage that's attached to the theater side the mall, but you can also park anywhere near the Sears and be fairly close.
