Based on the true story of a Yachtsman's dream to win the 1968 Golden Globe Race. Colin Firth who plays the leading role of "Donald Crowhurst" is forced to make some drastic sacrifices to be able to enter the race, with his sponsors running out of patience on the delivery of his yacht.
Donald has to sell up the family home as compensation for his sponsors if he doesn't complete the race, as well as leaving behind his wife "Clare Crowhurst" who is played by Rachel Weisz and his two sons. Colin Firth's performance is dark and overall the film leaves you wanting more in the end. This film is still a worthy watch and like all real life stories there's always an emotional twist.
