Connecticut Film Club - December Meeting

Join us as we watch In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard.

Cost: $7

The December 13 meeting of the UChicago CT Alumni Film Club will feature "In the Heart of the Sea" (running time 121 minutes). There are no reviews for the film, which is directed by Ron Howard, since it is set for a December 11 release. Metacritic gives the following synopsis:

"In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. In the Heart of the Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down."

Take a break from your holiday commitments to see this visually stunning and thought-provoking film.
