The Command, a feature based on a true story, centers on a Russian nuclear powered submarine that sank to the bottom of the Barents Sea back in August 2000. Directed by Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt, The Commune), the narrative centers on 23 sailors who attempt to survive the tragedy.
Matthias Schoenaerts, who delivered a memorable performance earlier this year in The Mustang, headlines the tale (he previously worked with Vinterberg in Far From The Madding Crowd). Rounding out the cast are Léa Seydoux (Spectre), Max Von Sydow (3 Days of the Condor), and Colin Firth (Bridget Jones’s Baby).
The Command premiered last year at the Toronto Film Festival, and it hits DirecTV starting May 23 with a limited theatrical release set for June 21.
