The 33 movie quotes tell the true story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped 2,400 feet below the surface of the earth in 2010 when the San Jose mine collapsed. The survival drama was written by Mikko Alanne, Craig Borten, and José Rivera based on the actual events of the disaster. Patricia Riggen directed The 33, which opened in the United States on November 13, 2015.
In The 33, a team of 33 miners (including Antonio Banderas, James Brolin, Lou Diamond Phillips and Mario Casas) head to work on the long and winding road, the only access, to a copper-gold mine located 700 meters underground in Northern Chile in 2010. While mine foreman Don Lucho Urzúa (Lou Diamond Phillips) has reported several safety concerns with the mine, management has prioritized production over protection, something that proves to be tragic when the mine collapses, trapping the 33 men inside with no way out and few resources, including food. Much to the ire of the miners' families (including Juliette Binoche, Kate del Castillo and Cote de Pablo), the owners of the mine make no attempt at a rescue.
After the collapse, the Chilean Government, including President Sebastián Piñera (Bob Gunton) and Mining Minister Laurence Golborne (Rodrigo Santoro) are tasked with determining if they should launch a rescue operation, a tough decision considering no one knows if the men are alive or dead. They eventually begin drilling and verify that the men have survived, but face incredible odds to rescuing the men from the highly volatile mountain site.The 33 was just one of several highly anticipated films opening in the later months of 2015 when it appeared in theaters alongside Trumbo, By the Sea, Spotlight and The Peanuts Movie.
