Captain Phillips is the commanding officer of the Alabama, but not for long. When Somali pirate Muse takes over his ship and holds him hostage, both men are set on a collision course with forces beyond their control.
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.
