Have you gotten your sailing fix this December by going to see In the Heart of the Sea?

I reported on this website last January that In the Heart of the Sea would open in March 2015.  But as all good sailors know, sometimes the wind disappears, and sailing ships don't get to port (or movies to their theaters) on time.  

But this movie is in theaters now.

According to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1390411/, this movie is a more complete story of the whaling ship Essex than was Moby Dick.

 Here is a plot synopsis from that website:

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.

I planned to go to the movie with Bill until we saw a trailer on the Charlie Rose Show recently.  Maybe we will go to a multiplex and see different movies.

If you see it, write a review and send it to me to add to this post!
