This week, Matthias Schoenaerts, Colin Firth and co. take to the seas in the new underwater thriller Kursk: The Last Mission. The film, which debuted at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, where we first caught it, is based on the true story of the nuclear-powered Oscar-class K-141 sub, which, following two massive explosions, was sunk to the bottom of the nearly two decades ago.
The film is excellent, brought to the screen by talented Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, the screenplay based on the book Robert Moore’s book A Time to Die, which was released in shops in 2002, two years after the disaster.
In this feature, we take a look at the film and four other submarine features to have graced the silver screen in recent times, all of which are well worth seeking out.
