First Official UK Trailer for James Marsh’s Donald Crowhurst Biopic THE MERCY with Colin Firth & Rachel Weisz

THE MERCY is an upcoming 2018 biographical drama film directed by James Marsh (Man on Wire. The Theory of Everything) and written by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, Side Effects). It stars Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, David Thewlis, Ken Stott, and Jonathan Bailey.

The film is based on the true story of Donald Crowhurst (Firth) 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 Claire (Weisz) and children waited for his return at home is one of the most enduring mysteries of recent times.
