The Mercy 1

Rachel Weisz is heading into a major fall with her supporting turn in The Favourite, but it’s not the only film from the actress arriving this month. She also stars alongside Colin Firth in The Mercy, which follows infamous yachting fraud Donald Crowhurst, who sent falsified reports of his location as his vastly underprepared crew tried to stay the course.

Coming from The Theory of Everything and Man on Wire director James Marsh, Screen Media and Trafalgar Releasing will release the film on November 30th in limited release, followed by nationwide, one-night-only screenings on December 6. Check out the trailer below.

Following his Academy Award nominated film The Theory of Everything, James Marsh directs 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 and 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.

The Mercy opens on November 30 in limited release and screens on December 6 nationwide.
