I have hinted a few times that my adult interest in Coleridge comes from my loe for seafaring tales – and Moby Dick is, at least one of my favorite MOVIES of all time. 😉 Now, I am delighted to find that Ron Howard, who is probably one of my favorite media people out there, is directing a movie version of the real events that inspired Melville, as presented in the very, very fine book In the Heart of the Sea. I am not that much of an avid movie goer, but I implicitly trust Howard to make this great; the cast, helmed by Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, and apparently, Michelle Fairley, is certainly reasonably high-profile. I’ll be a happy camper if this turns out to be great!
