In 1968, amateur yachtsman Donald Crowhurst set off as one of the competitors in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race – a daring round-the-world voyage.

What happened next turned bizarre and, ultimately, deadly. Man on Wire director James Marsh corals a strong cast to detail what might have happened with Crowhurst on his voyage.

“This is a deep, intelligent portrait of a man with quixotic ideas of making his name, and a man whose soul frayed at sea.” – Daily Telegraph
