Crew
Directed by Roger Donaldson

Screen legends Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal) and Mel Gibson (The Road Warrior, Braveheart) lead a stellar cast that includes Sir Laurence Olivier (Rebecca), Daniel Day-Lewis (The Crucible), Edward Fox (The Day of the Jackal), Bernard Hill (Titanic) and Liam Neeson (The Grey) in this action-packed adventure bursting with sensational battles, raging storms and an intensity as powerful as the mighty sea itself. Bristling with commanding performances, blazing dialogue and superb action scenes, this spectacular movie is everything a high-adventure fan could want. Hopkins delivers a brilliant portrayal as William Bligh, a real-life sea captain who, in 1787, steered The Bounty on a 27,000-mile voyage into danger, chaos and madness. After 31 days of battling severe sea squalls and Bligh's ever-increasing cruelty, the weary crew is relieved to finally land on a remote island. But soon their tyrannical captain wants to sail again, and the desperate men turn to first mate Fletcher Christian (Gibson) to help them take the ship back... or die trying. Directed by Roger Donaldson (Cadillac Man) with a screenplay by Robert Bolt (Lawrence of Arabia), based on a novel by Richard Hough (Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian).
