Captain Phillips

Hoping I am not the only one that hasn't seen this yet. Time to be adjusted when posted but 4 to 5:30 is the bargain matinee time.

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. It is - through director Paul 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 (R)-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. The film is directed by Academy Award (R) 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.

      Yep, behind the Lowes. It starts at 4:20 so I posted 4:15 as the meet time. It's a pretty small theater so we should be able to find each other. See you there!

    Changing the location to Wynnsong due to movie time change so hope this works for everyone. I should be there about 15 minutes early in the lobby. If you aren't sure it is me, use the code word "penguin." : D

    Excited! I joined the group a while ago but haven't yet been able to attend any events due to work schedules. I'm looking forward to this one!

    I would really love to come see this movie. I just recently had surgery for a broken knee cap and can't drive. If I can find a friend to take me, we will be there.

    I for one have not seen this yet, and have heard great things about it. Plus, my Cowboys won't be playing until 8:30 that evening. So, why not? :)
