Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestseller and the true story that inspired Moby Dick, In The Heart of the Sea is a seafaring epic. Telling the tale of ‘Essex’, the whaling ship that set sail in 1820, its crew unaware of nature’s violence they would encounter. What follows is an astonishing tale of human endurance in the most extreme of circumstances.

The film sees Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges), Chris Hemsworth (Rush), Cillian Murphy (Inception) and Ben Whishaw (The Danish Girl) fight for survival, with a behind the scenes dreamteam of writers and producers (Blood Diamond, Rise of the Planet Apes).
