SYNOPSIS

Based on the best-selling novels of Patrick O’Brian, the film stars Russell Crowe as “Lucky” Jack Aubrey, who pits his crew of the H.M.S. Surprise against a much better armed and ruthless privateer, in a chase that takes him all the way to the far side of the world.

Rising newcomer Paul Bettany (“A Beautiful Mind”) plays the ship’s surgeon, Dr. Stephen Maturin.
