SYNOPSIS
A heroic action-thriller, ``The Finest Hours`` is the remarkable true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the Coast Guard. Presented in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. On February 18, 1952, a massive nor`easter struck New England, pummelling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.

Disney`s ``The Finest Hours`` is the unforgettable story of the Coast Guard`s courageous mission, which is directed by Craig Gillespie and stars: Chris Pine; Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Casey Affleck; Ben Foster; Holliday Grainger; John Ortiz; and Eric Bana. Produced by Jim Whitaker and Dorothy Aufiero, the screenplay is by Oscar nominee Scott Silver and Oscar nominees Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson based on the acclaimed non-fiction book of the same name by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. Doug Merrifield serves as executive producer. ``The Finest Hours`` storms into cinemas in India on February 5.

The plot of this film is fairly straightforward by itself. While seasoned seamen are stranded in the gale, staring death in the face, it`s a miracle that they`re still alive and that the shattered Pendleton is even afloat. It`s only able crewman Ray`s (Affleck) resourcefulness that has kept them from death. ...Read full review
A boat going to rescue a tanker sliced into half by a rampaging sea. Thats the brief Gillespie has for this film based on a true-life such rescue carried out by the US Coast Guard, which remains, more than 60 years later, their biggest operation ever. ...Read full review
"The Finest Hours" attempts to lionise its protagonists, but its tone is more procedural than a dramatic recreation. Pine`s portrayal of Webber comes off stiff, and Grainger`s Miriam, instead of being a liberal woman ahead of her time, ends up being pushy and unlikeable. ...Read full review
