DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Drama - This fact-based adventure/drama is mostly a two-character piece, so fans of the two stars, Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin, will enjoy though the focus is more squarely on the former. Language is minimal, but there is brief non-sexual nudity, frequent alcohol, and some intense scenes of sailing in stormy waters that would be of concern for parents of the very young.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Tami's determination and competence keep the movie from becoming an ordeal. It's an honest, if somewhat neutered, account of what happens in situations like this, and worth seeing if you have an interest in (Wo)man vs. Nature battles.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good What human beings will do to survive, facing a Mother Nature who seems to have a vested interest in killing them, is, yes, awe-inspiring. It makes you think, "How would I face such challenges? Would I be as resourceful as Tami? Or would I give up?"

NY Post Full Review
Above Average "Adrift” is paced like its title, and the story's momentum is slowed somewhat by constant toggling between past and present. "Adrift” is worth a watch, even if its drama (perhaps inevitably) pales in comparison to the source material.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good What keeps Adrift from feeling like just a travelogue tacked on to a tragi-sploitive star vehicle is, ironically enough, its star. Woodley has always been great when it comes to bringing the radiance – she's like a sunbeam made sentient...
