In this week's blog we take a look at the pulse-pounding thriller, Captain Phillips, which focuses on the 2009 hijacking of the Maersk Alabama container ship by Somali pirates. Starring two time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (The Green Mile, Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away) and directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum) the film highlights the global issue of piracy and the risks vessels face as they navigate certain regions of the world.
