Determined to stop shipping losses on the oceans of the 18th century, Britain's Parliament offers an unprecedented cast award to anyone who can devise a way to determine longitude at sea. Convinced he can solve the problem that has defeated England's best minds, rural clock maker John Harrison (Michael Gambon) begins an obsessive, 40-year struggle to claim the Longitude prize with his ingenious marine clock. Two hundred years in the future, naval officer Rupert Gould (Jeremy Irons) stumbles across Harrison's forgotten chronometers. A veteran of the Great War, Gould sets out to bring some measure of order to his own shell-shocked life by devoting himself to restoring Harrison's long-neglected mechanical masterpieces. Interwoven in an epic tale spanning two centuries, Longitude is a lavishly produced voyage into the farthest reaches of human passion, perseverance and discovery.
