On November 20, 1820, in the Southeast Pacific, an enormous 85-foot sperm whale rammed and sank Nantucket whale ship The Essex and set its crew adrift more than a thousand miles from land. Only eight members of the young crew survived starvation, thirst and exposure, rescued at last by British whale ships three months later.

Just an okay movie. Some of the scenes of the whale under the water were amazing but the rest of the movie was pretty boring. Even though it is based on a true story I found the lost at sea part very hard to believe.
