100 Words: Here’s a movie I’d love to see but probably won’t


It’s “Greyhound,” starring Tom Hanks in a WWII flick featuring a running battle between a US destroyer and German UBoat. Hanks also wrote the script, which was inspired by actual events, adapting C.S. Forester’s “The Good Shepherd” and continuing the book’s meticulous accuracy. I was surprised to learn that Hanks also wrote and produced “Band of Brothers” and “The Pacific” miniseries. Even though I dearly love Forester’s Horatio Hornblower novels and other work as well, I probably won’t see this movie because it’s streaming on Apple TV+, which I don’t get and is one too many streaming services for me.
