In 2010, Watson navigated some of the world’s most challenging stretches of ocean over the course of 210 days, becoming the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world.
Directed by Sarah Spillane, True Spirit is based on the book by Watson. The movie stars Teagan Croft as the young and determined sailor.
Watson is supported in her journey by her sailing coach and mentor Ben Bryant, played by Cliff Curtis, as well as her parents, played by Josh Lawson and Academy Award-winner Anna Paquin. The film also features a supporting cast that includes Bridget Webb, Vivien Turner, Stacy Clausen and Todd Lasance.
True Spirit will be premiering exclusively on Netflix on February 3.
