Movie: In the Heart of Sea

In 1820, crewmen (Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy) aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write “Moby-Dick.”

『白鯨』の映画版。ストーリーは何度も何度も観たり読んだりしているのだけど、新しい映画になるとやっぱり観たいとおもってしまう。昔は鯨油がほんとに貴重だったんだなぁと改めて認識した。やはり新しい映像技術はすばらしく、海洋漁業のリスクや恐ろしさがよく描かれていた。
