From Academy Award winning director James Marsh (The Theory of Everything), and the producers of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri comes The Mercy, which follows the incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst (Colin Firth), 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 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. Featuring a strong supporting cast, The Mercy also co-stars David Thewlis and Ken Stott.
