CRUEL SEA, THE | Out Now

Commander Ericson is made captain of the Corvette Compass Rose, a small escort vessel used to guide and protect convoys travelling through the Atlantic. Ericson is thrown into a life and death dilemma which forces him to choose between destroying an enemy ship and sparing the lives of his own men. Ealing breaks from its traditional light comedies to offer a serious, authentic reconstruction of the battle of the Atlantic.
