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.
Based on a true story from 1787, this high-seas adventure sees a ship's crew rebel after suffering mistreatment by their tyrannical captain.
