In the aftermath, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins.

Movie Review – Adrift (2018)

Adrift, 2018.

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur.

Starring Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Grace Palmer, Jeffrey Thomas and Elizabeth Hawthorne.

Synopsis:

A young couple find themselves forced to battle for survival when the pleasure yacht they are sailing to California is caught in the midst of a horrific storm, leaving them drifting in the Pacific Ocean.

There’s a whole sub-genre of movies built around the idea of people alone – or nearly alone – in boats, stranded in the middle of the ocean. This year, Colin Firth (alone) drifted into insanity in The Mercy and recent years have given us Robert Redford (alone) in All is Lost and Suraj Sharma in Life of Pi. The latest addition to the stranded at sea canon is Adrift, in which it is Shailene Woodley condemned to battle the elements, with only a seriously injured Sam Claflin for company.

The film pitches the audience into the midst of the action,

Movie Review – Adrift (2018)

Adrift., 2018

Directed by Baltasar Kormakur.

Starring Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Grace Palmer, Jeffrey Thomas, and Elizabeth Hawthorne.

Synopsis:

Based on the true story of survival, a young couple’s chance encounter leads them first to love, and then on the adventure of a lifetime as they face one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.

Foreshadowing can be beneficial to a film experience or greatly detract from it by causing a frustrating degree of clichéd predictability. Adrift suffers from the latter, but it’s also a true story and partially inspired from the real Tami Oldham’s book recounting the perilous events at sea, so perhaps that element should be cut some slack. Still, unless you’re not paying attention to the dialogue cues, things happening on-screen, and maybe aren’t generally familiar with the means films will utilize to manipulate an audience, the destination is clear.

Shailene Woodley leads a tale of survival in “Adrift”

It seems like every other year, Shailene Woodley gets a feature piece here on the site. Some of that may just be due to when her films opt to come out, but I think there’s more to it than that. Frankly, she’s just such an interesting and talented actress, one goes back to her works a lot. This week, she has a new movie opening in Adrift, which I saw last night and really puts her front and center, but in general, it feels like she’s the sort of talent that bears fruitful discussions. So, that’s what we’ll be doing once again. One of these days she’ll be an Oscar nominee. I still firmly believe in that. This time around, she stars in Adrift, as previously mentioned. It’s a survival drama mixed with a tale of true love. Stx Films describes it as

‘Adrift’ Film Review: Shailene Woodley Helps Steer Fact-Based Tale of Sea Survival

‘Adrift’ Film Review: Shailene Woodley Helps Steer Fact-Based Tale of Sea Survival
Hollywood has had a fairly predictable approach to the combination of boat, sun, sea and starlet, and that is to emphasize skin over substance, and leave the derring-do to the men. But that equation has been getting reworked of late, and the endurance grit of women has edged to the forefront. There are, of course, the shark ordeals both real (“Soul Surfer”) and popcorn-flavored, the gender-equal action ethos of James Cameron, and Disney’s sumptuously empowering Polynesian girl adventure “Moana.”

But the one genre that’s eluded showcasing a strong woman is the lost-at-sea yarn, which has given us memorable adventures in this young century for Tom Hanks (“Castaway”), Robert Redford (“All Is Lost”), and an Indian boy paired with a digital tiger (“Life of Pi”), while largely avoiding stranding a female in open waters for an existentially punishing length.

Until “Adrift,” that is. The poster, which features Shailene Woodley
