Overview
The riveting and critically acclaimed bestseller, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Ron Howard
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 "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 now, its epic adaptation for the screen--will forever place the "Essex "tragedy in the American historical canon.
