The Mercy: Don­ald Crowhurst film de­lays

Practical Boat Owner - - News -

The film about Don­ald Crowhurst’s Ill-fated at­tempt to win the Golden Globe race will now be re­leased in the UK next year. The Mercy, which stars Colin Firth as Crowhurst and Rachel Weisz as his wife, Claire, was sched­uled to be re­leased on 27 Oc­to­ber 2017.

Now the IMDb web­site is list­ing the film as be­ing re­leased in the UK on 9 Fe­bru­ary 2018.

Don McIn­tyre, or­gan­iser of the 50th An­niver­sary race that will be sailed next year, claimed: ‘They have held the re­lease date to partly hook into the 2018 50th an­niver­sary edi­tion of the orig­i­nal 1968 Golden Globe’

Di­rected by James Marsh, The Mercy fol­lows Crowhurst’s at­tempt to race around the world to win the 1968-69 Golden Globe Race on his tri­maran, Teign­mouth Elec­tron, and his sub­se­quent de­scent into false­hood and mad­ness.
