Deep Water


Deep Water
A docu-drama which takes a look at the first solo around-the-world yatcht race. The film focuses on three very different individuals, and their families back on shore. The race became a media feeding frenzy, but not everything went according to plan for all the contestants involved. Fate also played a cruel hand.

91 minutes.

Box Office
Ed Scheid quote iconDeep Water successfully combines the pressure of the competition with an intriguing character study of the increasingly desperate Crowhurst.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconDeep Water is a documentary, but it's also one part adventure film, one part Greek tragedy, and one part meditation on the role of the ''hero'' in modern society.
