Starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin, Adrift is based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime. As the two avid sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn't anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. Adrift is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.Written by
I have been a sailor for 40 years, Adrift was realistic and at times terrifying. Filming in a tank or at sea is probably the most difficult movie making out there. Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin I thought were well matched together. For Shailene Woodley I thought this was her "Monster" from 2003 with Charlize Theron. This film I believe shows that Shailene has some real thespian muscle. She portrayed a capable sailor at 24 years old without that much experience at the time under her belt. It is wonderful to see film about the human spirit and not be overloaded with special effects, Tami Ashcroft has more grit than most and fair winds to her today.
