“Promise me you will come home.” Go behind the scenes in a featurette for the new film from ‘The Theory of Everything’ director James Marsh, hitting Irish cinemas February 9th.


Starring Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz, THE MERCY is the incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst (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 (Weisz) and their children behind, hesitantly embarking on an adventure on his boat the Teignmouth Electron.


THE MERCY arrives in Irish cinemas February 9, 2018.
