Emmy Award-Winning Series!
The ultimate high-seas hero, Horatio Hornblower is a man of unshakable courage, high principles, and matchless skill. Now, C.S. Forester's beloved mariner returns to the screen with two new films.
Loyalty finds Horatio marooned in peacetime Portsmouth, living off his superb card playing skills. But with the winds of war stirring, Hornblower is given command of the sloop Hotspur. Duty sees Horatio jumping into wedded bliss, and then returning to his command to face a French fleet that is preparing for invasion - aided by an old nemesis.
Swashbuckling action, broadside battles, and below-decks intrigue set the Emmy-winning Hornblower saga apart from other historical dramas. Ion Gruffudd (Black Hawk Down, Titanic) gives a star-making performance as the dashing hero, and the stellar supporting cast includes Robert Lindsay (Me & My Girl), Jamie Bamber (Band of Brothers), and Paul Copley (Queer as Folk).
