The Perfect Storm

Based on Sebastian Junger's 1997 best-selling book, this epic drama tells of the courageous men and women who risk their lives every working day, pitting their fishing boats and rescue vessels against the capricious forces of nature. Their worst fears were realized in 1991 when they were confronted by the greatest storm in modern history, and the six crew members of the swordfish boat, Andrea Gail, were lost 500 miles from home beneath waves reaching 100 feet high. Featured players include George Clooney as Captain Billy Tyne, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Linda Greenlaw and Mark Wahlberg as Bobby Shatford. Also on hand are Diane Lane, John C. Reilly and William Fichtner. Of the story directed by Wolfgang ("AIR FORCE ONE") Peterson: "Even though the crew perished, the story involves what the fishermen might have been feeling, along with their families onshore."
