Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson will star in a new film based on this National Book Award-winning account of the true events behind "e;Moby Dick."e;
In 1820, the whaleship "e;Essex "e;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. "e;In the Heart of the Sea"e;--and now, its epic adaptation for the screen--will forever place the "e;Essex "e;tragedy in the American historical canon.
