    The Mercy is a heart-wrenching movie, detailing the incredible story of an amateur sailor, Donald Crowhurst (Colin Firth) when he set out from the small seaside town of Teignmouth to sail around the world in a professional sailing competition.

    Unfortunately, Crowhurst doesn’t make it home but the film follows his adventure and, of course, highlights the impact on his wife and children, who he leaves behind.

    Donald Crowhurst becomes increasingly distressed, as he embarks upon a near-impossible voyage in an unfinished boat, as he realises he is not going to complete the challenge.

    Putting Teignmouth on the map and telling a heart-breaking story of a determined sailor, driven to complete a challenge and earn money for his family, The Mercy is just out on DVD and a great watch.

  • Fifty Shades Freed (2018)

    Play trailer
    1h 45min

    The third and final film in the Fifty Shades series. Fifty Shades Freed follows Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and her new husband Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), whilst they are stalked by Anastasia’s ex-boss.

    Ana becomes pregnant in this film and we watch how Christian deals with the news of becoming a father and, of course, his reaction to the complications in the way of his sexual experimentation.

    Sadly, the vengeful ex-boss of Ana’s attacks Ana in the abdomen, meaning she loses her baby, it turns out he had lived in the same foster home as Christian and was jealous Christian was adopted by the wealthy Grey family.

    Christian and Ana, unsurprisingly, get their happy ending and have two children together.

    Although the movie, like with its predecessors, may have received some negative criticism, the movie is an all-round feel good movie and, if you can stomach the raunchy sex scenes, you might actually want to watch the series again!
