In April 2010, all is not well at the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling unit. Located southeast of the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico, it sees mounting tensions between its workers – who have safety concerns – and the BP executives. With egos clashing and millions of dollars at stake, the work goes ahead without the necessary due diligence. As a result, disaster strikes, and it’s up to the heroic foremen to save the lives of as many of their crew as possible before the entire rig goes up in flames. Based on the true story of the largest oil spill in US history which became global news, this is a riveting thriller with plenty to say.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
