Ron Howard’s “Thirteen Lives” is an Oscar Contender Movie



Thirteen Lives

Ron Howard’s nail-biting Thai Cave Drama “Thirteen Lives” is based on a real-life rescue mission that captivated the world in 2018. Howard’s film, definitely one of his greatest, delivers a thrilling, sweeping depiction of the mission and reveals unexpected new elements that were kept secret for ethical reasons.

The incident received extensive media coverage. In 2018, 12 boys and their football coach went caving for an adventure, but became stuck as flooding from heavy rains filled the maze-like cavern.

The rescue effort, carried out by Thai officials in collaboration with several independent foreign divers, garnered worldwide attention and took more than two weeks.

Ron Howard has done an incredible job of relaying the story. He is the finest director for this film, based on his previous films such as Apollo 13 and In the Heart of the Sea, which are both about human survival despite all obstacles.
