Thomas Vinterberg (Far From the Madding Crowd, The Hunt) returns with this gripping and emotional thriller, based on the real-life Kursk submarine disaster.
When a training exercise goes terribly wrong, a Russian nuclear sub plummets to the sea-bed, trapping the survivors including the captain, Mikhail Averin (Schoenaerts).
Meanwhile the desperate relatives of the sailors battle an obstinate Russian government who refuse to accept the help of the UK’s Royal Navy operation headed by Captain David Russell (Firth).
