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 sails into Australian cinemas 8 March.
