Pick of the Week: “Captain Phillips”

Far off the coast, Phillips and his crew are taken hostage by Somali pirates led by Muse (Barkhad Abdi), resulting in a standoff the outcome of which is out of both their hands. Runtime: 134 minutes. Rated PG-13 for sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images, and for substance use.
