Shackleton is a 2002 drama based on the true life and story of explorer Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton (Kenneth Branagh). The film, directed and written by Charles Sturridge, was originally shown in two parts on a British television station. The story draws on actual diary entries and other accounts from the real expedition, providing detailed historical accuracy. In 1914, Sir Shackleton set out to the Antarctic with the goal of succeeding where many other brave explorers had already failed, sometimes fatally. Shackleton became obsessed with his voyage to the Anarctic, causing concern from his wife Emily (Phoebe Nicholls) and his mistress Rosalind (Embeth Davidtz). Many organizations expressed doubt about Shackleton's grand goals, making it difficult for him to find proper funding. Finally, Shackleton set off to brave the elements in a ship aptly named Endurance. He took along a crew of 30 men, including carpenter McNish (Ken Drury) and a photographed named Frank Hurly (Matt Day). When disaster unexpectedly struck, Shackleton was determined to survive and prove his naysayers wrong.moreless
