Moby Dick belongs to the first rank of world literature. Melville read widely and deeply within the Western tradition, and brought it all together in his complex masterpiece. Within the framework of a simple tale of obsession, Melville offers commentary on the corpus of philosophy, history, theology, and literature that is our inheritance. All of these themes swirl around the central question of the novel: should we affirm the world, with all of its evil, or should we defy it?

«Il primo capitolo di Moby Dick comincia con una dichiarazione non umana, ma angelica. Call me Ishmael: chiamatemi Ismaele, non già mi chiamo Ismaele. Non ha importanza il nome del protagonista narratore, ma ciò che egli simboleggia. Ismaele è l’uomo che si sa dotato di una superiorità non riconosciuta dal mondo: il primogenito di Abramo è un bastardo cacciato nel deserto, fra altri reietti; là impara a sopravvivere a questa morte, in perfetta solitudine, indurito contro le avversità». Elémire Zolla
Nella celebre traduzione di Cesare Pavese, il romanzo che più di ogni altro si avvicina alla potenza del mito.

Ishmael arrives in New Bedford where he meets Queequeg, a harpooner from the South Pacific, who becomes his inseparable friend during the long whaling voyage. Captain Ahab, a strange man with a peg leg, has only one purpose in life: to find and kill Moby Dick, the great white whale that had chewed off his leg years ago.

In this extremely loose adaptation of Melville's classic novel, Ahab is revealed initially not as a bitter and vengeful madman, but as a bit of a lovable scamp. Ashore in New Bedford, he meets and falls for Faith Mapple, daughter of the local minister and beloved of Ahab's brother Derek. Faith herself quickly returns Ahab's love, as Derek is drab and ignoble. On his next voyage, however, Ahab loses a leg to the monstrous white whale Moby-Dick. When upon his return to New Bedford he mistakenly believes Faith wants nothing to do with him because of his disfigurement, Ahab returns to sea with only one goal in mind – to find and kill the great white whale.

The whale caused the loss of Ahab's leg years before, leaving Ahab to stomp the boards of his ship on a peg leg. Ahab is so crazed by his desire to kill the whale, that he is prepared to sacrifice everything, including his life, the lives of his crew members, and even his ship to find and destroy his nemesis, Moby Dick.

Nell'inverno del 1820 l'Essex, una baleniera del New England, viene aggredita da qualcosa dall'aspetto incredibile: una balena dalle dimensioni mastodontiche, mossa quasi da sentimenti di vendetta umani. Subito dopo l'agghiacciante episodio, che ispirerà lo scrittore Herman Melville (Ben Whishaw) per il romanzo Moby Dick, i membri dell'equipaggio rimasti in vita sono spinti oltre ogni limite e sono costretti a tentare l'impossibile per sopravvivere. Sfidando le tempeste, la fame, il panico e la disperazione, gli uomini rimetteranno in discussione le loro più profonde convinzioni mentre il loro inesperto capitano George Pollard (Benjamin Walker) ricercherà una direzione in mare aperto e il suo primo uomo Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) non mollerà la caccia alla balena.
