Free Movie: Captain Phillips

by Migdalia Rivera

My family and I love watching documentaries. We also love going out to the movies. Captain Phillips, rated PG-13, combines both. And, it’s FREE!

If you’re a Latina On a Mission subscriber you already know we believe in living life to the fullest, without paying full price, and that includes the movies. So, make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out!  For up to date info, you can also check out my Entertainment section and Facebook Page.

Captain Phillips is the true story of Captain Richard Phillips, played by Tom Hanks, and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. (I saw Captain Phillips  and highly recommend it.)
