★★★★☆

British director and master of suspense Paul Greengrass returns to screens this week with Captain Phillips (12A). Based on the book A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, And Dangerous Days At Sea – which details the incredible true story of the 2009 hijacking by pirates of an American cargo ship – it’s an impressively told and suitably gripping thriller, and one of this year’s many highlights.
