The new drama “The Finest Hours” told a great story, but it could’ve been better. Based on a true story of an impossible Coast Guard rescue mission of 32 crewmembers. Bernie Webber captained a 36-foot boat off the coast of Cape Cod during a blizzard in 1952. I wish that Disney had gone a little deeper into the back story.
