When a Danish shipping vessel is taken captive and held for ransom by Somali pirates, a crew and their captain are left to the mercy of tense negotiations between a C.E.O. and a professional pirate negotiator. Director Tobias Lindholm makes his feature director debut in A HIJACKING, a masterfully tense thriller that pulls loyalties and allegiances in every direction. Utilizing an almost documentary immediacy on the ship and contrasting it with a more staid, calm world back home in Denmark, Lindholm underscores the distinctions between disparate worlds separated by class, culture and a desire to make a big score.
