Adrift

Gripping, well acted and beautifully made

(Edit) 21/03/2019

As a family, we really enjoyed this film. Some of the critic reviews I have read of this film seem slightly grudging in their praise. I think this is largely because of the number of similar survival movies, such as the relatively recent All is Lost, with Robert Redford. However, this is a true story and the interleaving of the action between the initial romance and the storm and its aftermath works very well. Shailene Woodley certainly puts her heart and soul into a gritty, believable performance. The cinematography is amazing, mixing the violence of the hurricane with the sheer isolation of the open ocean, while capturing the beauty of the sea, light and land and including some interesting and unusual underwater takes.

Highly recommended
