Cleveland Cinematheque Travels to JCU!

On Monday, Sept. 30, the Cleveland Cinematheque travels to the Donahue Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. to present the East Side Cleveland premiere of “A Hijacking,” one of the most acclaimed and exciting movies of 2013! (It has a 97% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes.com.)

“A Hijacking” chronicles what happens when a Danish cargo ship is hijacked in the Indian Ocean by Somali pirates and the crew held hostage. The movie crosscuts between the besieged vessel and shipping company’s corporate offices in Denmark to delineate the tense, delicate negotiations that ensue. Tobias Lindholm, who wrote and directed this nail-biter, also co-wrote the terrific Danish drama The Hunt. “If A Hijacking was in English, or if U.S. audiences weren’t finicky about reading subtitles, or if life was fair, this brilliant thriller…would be playing on multiplex screens throughout the country.” –Wall Street Journal.
