LUSITANIA, a Ron Howard Film

An epic action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the RMS LUSITANIA. 

 

On May 1, 1915, The RMS LUSITANIA departs from New York Harbor to Liverpool, England carrying more than 2,000 men, women, children, ship's crew, including 124 Americans.

 

For several months prior, the British, American and German Governments were aware of the dangers of passenger ships entering the British Isles and several warnings were discussed.

 

On May 7, the RMS LUSITANIA enters the British Isles. Suddenly, a lone torpedo streams across the sea and crashes into its port side. Within 18 minutes, the RMS LUSITANIA sinks to its final resting place along with 1,100 innocent souls.

 

More than 700 survivors are floating in the sea fighting for their lives until rescue boats from nearby towns arrive.

 

Following several criminal investigations, no nation, no ship's officers, no person was held responsible for this disaster.
