  • In the Heart of the Sea

    A massive white whale attacks and destroys a ship under the command of an inexperienced, prideful, and greedy captain. Herman Melville’s novel “Moby Dick” is a fictionalized version of this actual event. In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard, portrays the story of the 1820s disastrous expedition of the whaling ship Essex, and Melville’s desire to write the tale.

    ClearPlay In Action!

    The filters block numerous religious profanities, mild swearing, and a risqué female image carved out of whalebone. ClearPlay also skips over some bloody scenes of a harpooned whale and the gruesome process of reaping its fat. Since the de-blubberfying takes a few minutes of screen time, the filter jumps might feel disjointed, but enough elements remain to understand the scene.

    Does Heart of the Sea capture a behemoth experience

    I found the story more interesting than its offspring, Moby Dick (but admittedly, I haven’t given the novel much effort since high school lit). The quality cinematography and special effects, along with the action, kept my interest, despite a few slow scenes of the crew adrift. Be warned: The men resort to abhorrent methods to survive, and although the deeds remain unseen, they are vividly implied. If youngsters grasp the implications, they might have difficulty processing the moral dilemma. Still, it’s worth watching this (can’t resist using the phrase)…whale of a tale.
