    Synopsis


    Director Franc Roddam and co-scripter Anton Diether adapted Herman Melville's 1851 classic for this four-hour TV miniseries sea adventure. Ishmael (Henry Thomas) ignores the warnings of dockside prophet Elijah (Bruce Spence) and joins the crew of the whaling ship Pequod. Ismael befriends Polynesian harpooner Queequeg (Maori actor Piripi Waretini), hears a sermon by Father Mapple (Gregory Peck, star of the 1956 Moby Dick), and meets the obsessed Captain Ahab (Patrick Stewart), who lost his leg to the great white whale Moby Dick and now seeks vengeance on the looming leviathan. For effects, Roddam used a three-sectioned Moby Dick, added computer graphics, and shot Pequod footage in a tank at an Australian military base. TV Guide described Stewart's performance as "mesmerizing and passionate." The $20 million production aired March 15-16, 1998 on the USA Network. ~ Bhob Stewart

      After seeing this film as a child my son had to watch this movie for school. Seeing how long it was he was not very enthused, but I decided to watch it with him & within the first hour he was hooked by the story. Instead of watching it in 2 nights, we watched it in one sitting..we binge-watched it!! Very enjoyable film. Great story..great characters. Worth another watch!!

      The film was very realistic in the story line and the action. It held my attention all the way from beginning to end. Loved Patrick Stewart's Captain Ahab. Felt sorry for him. But think he got what he really wanted in the end.
