I would like to have a copy of this compelling drama
5 April 2006 | by DenogginnatorSee all my reviews

I have only seen this made for TV movie once, yet it has stayed with me all these years. I had forgotten it's name, yet went on a search to find it many years later because of it's powerful theme. I have seen the movie it was adapted from, and this takes the story from the survival on the lifeboat to the courtroom where Martin Sheen's character is held to account for his actions. Just as with the different Mutiny on the Bounty movies, I am intrigued by the story beyond the tragic events, and how it is perceived by those present and not present at the time.

The actions taken by Sheen can be viewed from different lenses depending on ones gender, politics, and morals. He can be cast a hero by some, a villain by others and this movie brings that dynamic to the screen in a very powerful way. Besides wanting to see it again and securing a copy of it, I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in the aforementioned themes.
