Because no matter how many forms of folly and madness emerge in the tale of Donald Crowhurst, there's quite a bit of valor here, too: in his bold lunge, however misguided, to save his family from ruin; in his wife's and his son's candor in confronting their memories and placing themselves in his shoes; and in the film's flawlessly plotted dramatic course.
