A long shot becomes a weevil.
PMDb Plot Summary: In an unbuckled, swash-less era when pirates were in dire need of legendary figures to inspire them to greater acts of marauding, Seabiscuit was a film whose time had come. A documentary on the avarice and desperation that develops when the characters have no provisions for months on end but fish heade stewe and weevil-biscuits, it lurchingly explores the delicate and complex interactions between weevils, cook, crew and captain. The film accurately and movingly portrays the people and weevils and events of those troubled times, and how they still influence us today.
