Doc Corner: Hitting the High Seas with ‘Maiden' and ‘The Raft'

ByGlenn Dunks

Did anybody see that Colin Firth movie about the amateur sailor who attempted to circumnavigate the world and failed miserably.It was calledThe Mercy,and whileI never watched it,I did think of it as I watchedMaiden.This is a film with such a remarkable true story that I couldn't believe nobody had made a film out of it already but they had madeThe Mercy.Although I suppose one shouldn't expect more: a movie about a male failure will almost always get made before that of a female success.But now we haveMaiden,which puts a full stop at the end of that and seeks to settle a few more filmmaking blindspots with its oft-exhilarating telling of Tracy Edwards,a 24-year-old rebel who in 1989 became the skipper of the first ever female crew to compete in the Whitbread Round the World boat race.
