Storyline

After their luxury liner is sunk, a group of over twenty survivors take refuge in a life boat made for only nine. Included in the group are an old opera singer, a nuclear physicist, his wife and child, a General, a playwright and his dog, a college professor, a gambler and his mistress, the ship's nurse, and several members of the crew, including the Captain and executive officer. Soon, the captain dies from his injuries. The executive officer must take charge, and as a hurricane approaches, and their food and water run out, he must decide who to put over the side, and who stays and gets a chance at survival.

Abandon Your Beliefs
22 November 2011 | by Richie-67-485852See all my reviews

Most excellent entertaining movie bringing us a cross section of life and real life situations with human nature at work. Some very difficult decisions have to be made in this movie by everyone involved. We are reminded that when not challenged, your opinion or belief just sits there. You may or may not ever know if it bears fruit. But when summoned into action, the we find out what works and what doesn't sometimes much to our own disbelief too. In this movie, the players and even the viewer is forced to confront themselves. Is what we are seeing acted out real and is it plausible? Yes, frighteningly so. Should we all die unnecessary deaths or should some live for the right reasons. What makes you more attractive to "live" and contribute than let's say the other guy? Strangely enough, it is not being judgmental when you see the other persons abilities or lack thereof. Observing what will or wont work is raw reality and then acting on it is raw courage. That is what you will find here. Sometimes the majority is wrong and the minority unsure, but going along to get along is not an option. This movie presents and proves that point. The stage is set well in the beginning and then leads to a point where it roller coasters...then hold on..Popcorm recommended, I roast fresh sunflower seeds and chomp away....Enjoy and do spread the word and may all your decisions be your own
