    No, but planning on it for sure. Four young bucks throwing themselves into less than even odds for the benefit of five times plus perfect strangers is a can't miss story. Even if the cinematography fails it'll beat spending time with OJ or Whitey Bulger.

    In the last year I saw a story about the boat. Apparently someone found it cast away on the hard near rotted beyond recovery and assembled a restoration team.

    Just plain good stuff

    I saw it yesterday. Me and a friend both give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. It is really good, and I recommend.

    I liked the part when the young women turns on the radio ,while she was at a women's house ( who lost her husband at sea ) maybe it was me but you can hear a click when she turns the knob on and you can hear the radio work right away. Back then it would take easily several seconds delay after you turn the radio on to work as they had vacuum tubes , took a little while to warm up before it would work. Even the cars that they where driving seemed that the wipers worked smoothly and steadily removing the snow, those vehicles had a vacuuming system from the engine to engage the movement. If you tried climbing a hill they barely moved or accelerating/decelerating they varied in speed movement the wipers barely moved. They also made a sucking sound when they where engaged ,don't remember hearing that sound when anyone was driving ( from inside ) even the heating systems in those old cars where barely adequate, many did not have a ducted system. I did notice a nice car in that movie, a 1940 Ford Standard Coupe. But hey at least the actors/actress did not have bleached white teeth to throw off the authentic of the era.

    All in all I thought it was a very good movie.

    I'm hoping it is better than the Star Wars movie I just wasted good money on.

    Yes I thought the same thing about the vacuum tube era of radio. That radio couldn't come on that fast. And the USCG has their own frequencies on VHF FM for their communications. That radio sure didn't look marine specific.

    Also noticed no smoke on the breath. At those temps every exhale would be vapor. But, it was a good movie.
