Based on the events surrounding the 2009 hijacking of an American cargo ship off the coast of Somalia, this nerve-jangling film from "United 93" director Paul Greengrass dramatizes the actions taken by Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks) when the vessil under his command is overrun by a crew of Somali pirates.  As a military response is planned, Phillips maneuvers himself into position as the hijacker's hostage.
