The Finest Hours

“In the coast guard they say you go out, they don’t say you gotta come back.”

The Film Board Gathers! This month we’ve come together to take on Craig Gillespie’s story of a heroic Coast Guard rescue at sea, “The Finest Hours” starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck. How does the rugged crew handle the thrashing of the Nantucket coast? It’s a contentious episode this week, one that splits us on adaptation, truth versus fiction, and the stoicism versus spectrum disorder. Join Andy Nelson, Steve Sarmento, Justin Jaeger, Tommy Handsome, and Pete Wright as we unpack heroism, luck, and headlights in this mostly family adventure!
