Directed by James Marsh, who helmed the Oscar-nominated The Theory of Everything, The Mercy uncovers the story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst, who attempts to tackle the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe race around the world.

Starring Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz and David Thewlis, the film launched in early 2018.

We had the pleasure of lending our beauty expertise to a couple of tricky sequences featuring Colin Firth walking through a crowd and interacting with other characters.
