THIS MONTH’S FILM: Moby Dick (2011)

“My son was an extra in this one,” says Webb of the miniseries adaptation of the classic Herman Melville whaling epic, featuring Lunenburg filling in for Nantucket. “A lot of local people were.”

Webb, who himself sailed for more than three decades in a past life, even met Captain Ahab – star William Hurt.

“He came into the shop one night around midnight and we had a good talk for about a half hour about all kinds of topics.”
