ADRIFT (2018): The Things I Liked…

I actually wasn’t sure how engaging Adrift would be considering that a good amount of it takes place at sea. I’m therefore very glad to report that a key highlight of the film for me at least is the smart way the story is told and edited.

The structure of director Baltasar Kormákur’s movie did a good job at ensuring I remained interested throughout. The performances by Sam Claflin and Shailene Woodley certainly helped with that. As did the film’s general premise – the true survival story of a young couple stranded at sea. Being the sucker for a touching love story that I am, I also appreciated the romance.

I’d love to say that I’ve retained a few nuggets of knowledge about surviving at sea after watching Adrift – but really all I’ve learned is that it wouldn’t be a bad idea for me to know how to sail. Watch it if the story and actors appeal. Who knows.

Happy Film Loving
