A Hijacking in August

Arrow Films have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of A HIJACKING for August 26th, 2013. From the press release…

A HIJACKING is the highly acclaimed and intensely realistic film starring Pilou Asbæk (Borgen, The Whistleblower, A Family), Søren Malling (The Killing, A Royal Affair) and Screen Actors Guild Awards Outstanding Performance nominee Dar Salim (The Devil’s Double), and is an engrossing journey of a cargo ship taken hostage by Somali pirates.

The cargo ship MV Rozen is heading for harbour when it is hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. Amongst the men on board are the ship's cook Mikkel (Asbæk) and the engineer Jan (Roland Møller), who along with the rest of the seamen are taken hostage in a cynical game of life and death. With the demand for a ransom of millions of dollars a psychological drama unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company (Malling) and the Somali pirates.

Special feature TBA.
