“The Finest Hours” at Screenville

A true story about the most daring rescue mission in US Coast Guard history when a pair of oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard in 1952, off the coast of Cape Cod in this suspense-thriller, “The Finest Hours”, which will premiere on March 2, at ICM Screenville Cinemas.

On Feb. 18, 1952, a massive storm splits the SS Pendleton in two, trapping more than 30 sailors inside the tanker’s sinking stern. Engineer Ray Sybert bravely takes charge to organize a strategy for his fellow survivors. As word of the disaster reaches the Coast Guard in Chatham, Mass., Chief Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff orders a daring rescue mission. Despite the ferocious weather, coxswain Bernie Webber takes three men on a lifeboat to try and save the crew against seemingly impossible odds.

The shipwreck disaster movie is based on the 2009 novel of same name by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. It tells the true story of a spectacular rescue off the coast of Massachusetts in the winter of 1952, after an oil tanker broke in two in turbulent seas. It is still considered the most accomplished small-boat rescue in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard.

“THE FINEST HOURS” will premiere on March 2, at ICM Screenville Cinemas.
