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.
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

During their ill-fated cruise Tami and Richard observe the sun setting off their starboard bow, meaning they are sailing in a westerly direction. The route from Tahiti to San Diego however is towards north-east. See more »
This movie had all the elements I normally like. It was a true story and involved adventure in scenic loctions. Unfortunately, I found neither actor interesting or appealing. The girl seemed shallow and the love connection between them was stilted and unconvincing.
