Cast

Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, David Thewlis

This is an unfairly dismissed British drama that got lost in the awards season avalanche of prestige films. Colin Firth plays the intensely conflicted Donald Crowhurst, a man who set out to circumnavigate the globe by himself, but who struggled against the conditions, but also his own inner demons. This is a brave biopic that refuses to cast its protagonist in a heroic light and is driven along by a beautifully understated score by the late Johann Johannsson.
