“The only thing more dangerous than the front lines was the fight to get there”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “During the early days of the United States’ involvement in World War II, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Commander Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks), crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while being hotly pursued by wolf packs of German U-boats. The film focuses on Krause, a career officer who was finally given command of a destroyer, USS KEELING (radio code named ‘Greyhound’). Unlike the prototypical hero, he must battle his own self-doubts and personal demons to be an effective leader of the defenders.”
This film is based on the novel The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester.” The screenplay was written by Tom Hanks.
This film was previously set for theatrical release by Sony Pictures on Father’s Day weekend (2020), but moved to international premier on Apple TV+ due to CoVid-19 disruption.
