A true story of survival, as 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.
Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
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
The Hazana was a 1970s model Trintella. One of the reasons why it didn't sink is that it had a double-hulled design. The air sealed within the hull gave it buoyancy enough to bring it up after being submerged. However, the damage to the outer hull caused a serious leak, filling much of the space with water. This lowered the profile of the boat and increased its drag, which slowed its progress. See more »
The use of a sextant requires a clear horizon and visible navigable stars or the moon (or the sun during the day), a nautical almanac, Bowditch tables and considerable calculations. Plus a single sight, especially during the day using the sun, would only render a line of position, not a fix. Multiple LOP's advanced over several hours would be needed to establish a fix (actual position). See more »
Not the typical movie i would pay to go see at the cinema, but Moviepass changes everything and the wife dragged me in. Must say i was glad she did. Up til now ive not really like Shailene, except for Snowden. But this suited her down to the ground i think.
Movie was somewhat of a romance, a little suspense, good use of flashbacking and an unexpected twist.
