Synopsis

In 1820, the whaling ship Essex was cripplingly assaulted by an enormous sperm whale, resulting in a frantic scramble for survival amongst its crew, who pushed themselves to scarcely comprehensible limits to stay alive. The extraordinary story would go on to inspire Herman Melville to write his classic novel Moby Dick. This film tells of the ill-fated voyage through flashbacks told to Melville, drawing vividly on the experiences of first mate Owen Chase and his relationship with inexperienced Captain, George Pollard. Combining sweeping, old-fashioned adventurous storytelling with lavish visuals and immersive cinematography, the result is an engrossing seafaring yarn that will draw audiences to the book its events inspired.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
