The Mercy (12A)

The Mercy (12A)

Details

Colin Firth stars in incredible true story of adventure and deception in The Mercy, screening at the Kirkgate Centre

The story of Donald Crowhurst, an amateur sailor who competed in the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race in the hope of becoming the first person in history to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe without stopping

With an unfinished boat and his business and his house on the line, Donald leaves his wife, Clare (Rachel Weisz) and their children behind, hesitantly embarking on an adventure on his boat the Teignmouth Electron.

Co-starring David Thewlis and Ken Stott, the story of Crowhurst's dangerous solo voyage and the struggles he confronted on the epic journey while his wife Clare and their family awaited his return is one of the most enduring mysteries of recent times.

Directed by James Marsh (The Theory of Everything)
