Preview: An Infamous moment in Sailboat Racing is re-staged for “The Mercy”

“Around Alone” is a solo sailboat race around the world that’s gone under a variety of names over the decades.

But one name stands out in its history, Donald Crowhurst. And not because he was a winner, either.

Oscar winner Colin Firth and Oscar winner Rachel Weisz plays the Crowhursts — the solo sailor with a lot of bravado and not much else, and the woman who says “Promise me you’ll come home.”

Not sure when “The Mercy,” “The Mercy,” which probably started life as Oscar bait, will see the light of day in the U.S.
