Adrift

Coming to Cinemas 28 June 2018

Shailene Woodley (Divergent) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You) are lovers caught in a hurricane at sea in this true story drama from Baltasar Kormákur (Everest).

As the two avid sailors set out on a trans-oceanic journey, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn't anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in history. After the storm hits, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength to save herself and the only man she has ever loved.

Woodley has a gift for conjoining inner strength and vulnerability until the two are all but indistinguishable.

Hollywood Reporter

If the part of the film devoted to endurance lacks the harrowing power of, say, 2013's All Is Lost, it at least gives Woodley the opportunity to convincingly sink her teeth into a plum dramatic lead role...

The film is a notch below average.

Variety (USA)

[Woodley] knows how to play an ordinary woman who's wild at heart, and she keeps you captivated, even when the film itself is watchable in a perfectly competent, touching, and standard way.

NPR

What might have been a typical disaster movie about perfunctorily established characters heading into peril together...instead becomes a love story that keeps asserting and reinforcing itself as the film goes along. It's elegant in the cutting.

Stop Googling and see the film first. You'll be glad you didn't know all the details beforehand.

Director Baltasar Kormakur makes good use of location filming on the open waters, giving this melodramatic tale a dose of realism, but "Adrift" is never as harrowing as the subject matter would suggest.
