Movie Details

Adapted from the novel of British writer C.S. Forester, Hornblower is the story of a 17-year-old novice, Horatio Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd), who becomes one of the most formidable figures in naval history once he is over his first experience of getting seasick while on a boat docked in a harbor. Little by little, Hornblower proves himself daring and inventive, until no battle or adventure is big enough for him. Presented as four two-hour episodes, Hornblower is an action, adventure drama that would find its best audience among teenage boys. Ioan Gruffudd received the FIPA d'Or (Golden FIPA) for "Best Actor" for his role as Hornblower at the Festival International de Programmes Audiovisuels (FIPA) 1999 in Biarritz, France. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi
