Colin Firth plays the hapless real-life adventurer Donald Crowhurst in The Mercy, a forthcoming movie inspired by Crowhurst’s ill-fated attempt to compete in the 1969 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.
“I wouldn’t dare do what he did,” said Firth. “Even to this day, what Crowhurst did is unparalleled because, although people have gone round the world and have endured all sorts, I don’t know if it’s even possible now to construct a challenge with that sort of adversity… They were sailing across a frontier.”
The first trailer for the movie, released today, shows Firth in character as Crowthurst, alongside Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz as his wife Clare.
It is “an extraordinary and haunting tale of a man going to sea and the family he leaves behind”, according to the director, James Marsh (Man on Wire, The Theory of Everything).
