title
In the Heart of the Sea
fullDescription
From the author of Valiant Ambition, the riveting and critically acclaimed bestseller and major motion picture starring Chris Hemsworth, directed by Ron Howard
Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson star in the film based on this National Book Award–winning account of the true events behind Moby Dick.
In 1820, the whaleship Essex was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny boats. Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster. In the Heart of the Sea—and its epic adaptation for the screen—will forever place the Essex tragedy in the American historical canon.
