The Mercy


James (Man on Wire) Marsh directs this drama, based on the incredible true story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst, and his attempt to win the first single-handed round-the-world yacht race in 1968.

Crowhurst (Colin Firth) entered the Sunday Times Golden Globe race, partly as an opportunity to publicise a new navigation device he had been working on. Leaving his family behind, his inexperience and loneliness found him confronted with dramatic struggles and acute isolation alone on the high seas.

A haunting tale of a man going to sea and the family he leaves behind.

The 6.05pm screening on Tuesday 20 February will feature on-screen captions.
