DVD Discount of the Week: A Hijacking


With the release of Northwest, starring Roland Møller, this Friday we giving you the chance to purchase one of Møller’s previous film on DVD, for less than half price.

After Somali pirates apprehend a Danish cargo ship an intense negotiation period opens between the hijackers and Peter C. Ludvigsen (Søren Malling), the CEO of the shipping company in Denmark. Requesting millions of dollars in ransom and with the lives of their crew hanging in the balance, humble chef Mikkel Hartmann (Pilou Asbæk)becomes an unlikely peacemaker who attempts to resolve the situation in the quickest and most peaceful way possible. Assisted by his friend Jan (Møller), Mikkel desperately pleas with the negotiators but also tries to befriend the volatile pirates.

Directed by Tobias Lindholm, A Hijacking was one of the most highly regarded films of 2012 and received numerous festival awards and nominations.  Smart, intense and at times somber, A Hijacking has been referred to as Borgen on a boat not only due its detailed look at politics but of course for its stunning lead performances by Pilou Asbæk and Søren Malling, two of the  main faces of Borgen. For one week only this incredible film can be yours to own on DVD for the bargain price of just £5, which is better than half price.
