A Hijacking DVD

Opening in cinemas to rave reviews back in May, tense drama A Hijacking finally comes to DVD & Blu-ray 26th August. Directed by Tobias Lindholm, writer of Borgen and The Hunt, A Hijacking is one of the must-own Home Entertainment releases of the year.

The film is a highly acclaimed and intensely realistic film starring Pilou Asbæk (Borgen, The Whistleblower, A Family), Søren Malling (The Killing, A Royal Affair) and Screen Actors Guild Awards Outstanding Performance nominee Dar Salim (The Devil’s Double), and is an engrossing journey of a cargo ship taken hostage by Somali pirates.

Before thrilling cinema goers, A Hijacking was the stand out film at the Venice, Toronto and BFI London festivals last year.

The cargo ship MV Rozen is heading for harbour when it is hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean.

Amongst the men on board are the ship's cook Mikkel (Pilou Asbæk) and the engineer Jan (Roland Møller), who along with the rest of the seamen are taken hostage in a cynical game of life and death.

With the demand for a ransom of millions of dollars a psychological drama unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company (Søren Malling) and the Somali pirates.

A Hijacking is released by Arrow Films on DVD & Blu-ray 26th August
