The movie “The Finest Hours” will be shown Saturday night at the West Cape May (N.J.) Borough Hall.

Brought to Cape May by the 16th annual Cape May Film Festival, which will run from Friday through Sunday, “The Finest Hours” brings to life the most daring rescue in the history of the Coast Guard.

The film depicts the harrowing saga of a four-man crew based out of Small Boat Station Chatham, Mass., who risked their lives to save those of 33 men stranded at sea during a devastating nor’easter in 1952.

Organizers said that after the movie is shown, Michael Tougias, who wrote the book “The Finest Hours,” will hold a “talkback” with the audience.
