The North Water, an adaptation of Ian McGuire's novel, kicks off as an ex-army doctor joins a dangerous expedition to the Arctic.

He's trying to escape his past, but the ship isn't quite as welcoming as he would have hoped. In fact, he meets a brutish harpooner who also happens to be a murderous psychopath. Soon, the doctor will be forced to fight for his life in the Arctic wasteland.

With excellent performances from Jack O'Connell and an almost unrecognisable Colin Farrell, The North Water is a dark and ominous binge. If you loved The Terror, you'll likely love this one as well. The cinematography is top-notch.
