The North Water

Created, directed, adapted to screen and co-produced by renowned British filmmaker Andrew Haigh (45 Years), this well-executed drama is based on the book by UK author Ian McGuire. Riveting, entertaining and satisfying, it features masterful performances from British actors Jack O’Connell, Stephen Graham and Tom Courtenay. Co-produced by British companies See-Saw Films and BBC.





In 1859 Hull, a disgraced former army surgeon (Jack O’Connell) signs up as ship's doctor on a whaling ship headed to the Arctic. On board he meets an ominous harpooner (Colin Farrell), whose barbaric and unscrupulous ways have been shaped by the unforgiving world he inhabits.
