On Tuesday, July 12 at 1:30 PM the library will be showing the
movie, “The Finest Hours The Impossible Rescue,” based on the true
story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history.
When a massive storm hits off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2
oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors in the rapidly
sinking stern. As the Coast Guard Captain and his crew set out
in a 12-seat rescue boat, the oiler’s Chief Engineer struggles to
buy his men more time. Amazon says this film is “packed with
heroic larger-than-life action, and driven by the men’s faith in
their mission, themselves and one another.”
