Academy Award winner James Marsh (The Theory of Everything) directs the incredible true story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst (Academy Award winner Colin Firth: The King’s Speech, The Railway Man) and his attempt to win the first non-stop single-handed round-the-world yacht race in 1968.
The story of Crowhurst’s dangerous solo voyage and the struggles he confronted on the epic journey while his wife, Clare (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz: The Light between Oceans, Youth), and children waited for his return is one of the most enduring mysteries of recent times.
The Mercy also stars David Thewlis and Ken Stott and sails into cinemas March 8.
