Summary
Academy Award-winner William Hurt top-lines this retelling of Herman Melville's timeless tale of obsession and madness on the high seas. His crew taken from him by massive white whale that dwells deep in the sea, vengeful Captain Ahab (Hurt) steers his Nantucket whaling vessel The Pequod into the open waters on a mission to find and kill the elusive leviathan. But the deeper the waters get, the further Captain Ahab falls into a dangerous void of all-consuming insanity. Ethan Hawke, Gillian Anderson, Donald Sutherland, and Eddie Marsan co-star
