During a scene when Tami and Richard are watching a sunset, Tami references Bob Ross when poking fun at Richard. However given her time traveling overseas from 78-83 this couldn't have been a pop reference she knew. See Bob Ross's Joy of Painting was in production from 1983-1994, Season 1 ran from Jan 11th - Mar 29th 1983 and Season 2 ran from Aug 31st - Nov 23 1983. The first season of The Joy of Painting aired on many PBS stations across the east coast, but the audience was small. It ended up moving to a new home on public television. This time, at WIPB in Muncie, Indiana. Their initial trip would take them back to her home in San Diego and be home by October. Given these factors it's highly unlikely anyone on that side of the world would have heard of a new (low viewership) show that was Broadcast by non-commercial public television stations. See more »

Richard and Tami accept the offer but along their journey, there is a storm that throws Richard in the sea and wreaks the vessel. Tami rescues Richard from the water and they fight to survive while the vessel is adrift. Will they survive?
"Adrift" is a good film with a story of love and survival. Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin show great chemistry and wonderful performances. The screenplay entwining past and present keeps the interest in the film until the very end with an unexpected plot point. The direction and the special effects are magnificent, giving the sensation that the sailing ship is crossing a storm indeed. The camera work is also impressive shooting in small spaces with perfect edition. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Vidas à Deriva" ("Adrift Lives")
