great chemistry between the leads - and terrific use of flashback structure

"Adrift" (PG-13, 2:00) is an action-adventure drama-romance produced and directed by Baltasar Kormákur ("Everest", "2 Guns", "The Deep") and written by David Branson Smith ("Ingrid Goes West") and Aaron and Jordan Kandell ("Moana"), based on the book by Tami Ashcraft. Unlike most movies dramatizing something that actually happened, this one doesn't begin with the usual qualifiers of "Based on a true story" or "Inspired by a true story". This one tells us simply, "This is a true story."

Tami Oldham (Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Shailene Woodley) is a single 24-year-old adventurer, originally from San Diego, who works her way from place to place on a worldwide voyage of self-discovery. As the film opens, she gets off a boat in Tahiti and responds to the custom agent's questions by admitting she doesn't have an occupation or any idea how long she'll be staying in the country. In spite of her apparent aimlessness, she gets her passport stamped and starts working at the docks doing maintenance on various pleasure craft. That's where she meets the handsome and charming Richard Sharp (Sam Claflin), who is in the process of sailing around the world on a journey similar to Tami's.

Tami and Richard are well on their way to falling in love when a wealthy older couple ask Richard to sail their yacht to San Diego, in exchange for $10,000 and a First Class airline ticket back to Tahiti. Make that two First Class tickets. Tami says she's not ready to go home yet, but she doesn't want to be separated from her new love, so she comes along for the ride... and, as a novice sailor herself, to help out where she can. Unfortunately for the young lovers, they get caught up in a monster storm at sea that damages the boat - and each of them - severely. The best solution seems to be allowing the prevailing currents to carry the boat east, try to navigate towards Hawaii - and try to survive long enough to get there.

"Adrift" is this film's title, but the story is anything but. Appearing in flashbacks, the story of Tami and Richard is told parallel with the story of the journey to Hawaii. It's an especially effective plot device in this intelligent screenplay. The two leads are each first class actors who play their roles expertly and with undeniable chemistry. This film compares well with Robert Redford's "All is Lost" and Tom Hanks' "Cast Away", with the added allure of the romance and the strong foundation of being a true story. "A-"

Badly structured and written

Let's start with the positives, there's some good photography in this movie. If you like sailing there's some eye candy for you here. Also the storm scenes are well shot and convincingly scary and.... well unfortunately that's it.

Shailene Woodley is not a bad actress and she's a producer on this too but the scene-setting romance in this movie is just plain embarassing. It's like it was lifted from a bad teen romcom. The whirlwind romance between the two leads is utterly unconvincing so when it comes to the survival part of the movie they are just not credible.

The film is awkwardly structured in a way that jumps back and forth in a short timeline. There was no real need do do this and it just makes the drama more disjointed and reduces the tension. It may have been done to hide the fact that this is an otherwise dull storyline and possibly to distract the audience from the upcoming "twist" in the plot. A twist that everybody can see a nautical mile away!

This true life story could have been turned into a compelling movie but sadly this isn't it.

Not what i was expecting..

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. Adrift was nowhere near as good as the trailer showcased, i mean both Sam Clafflin and Shailene Woodley were good and they had chemistry together for sure plus the direction wasn't that bad either but the film's script and pacing were totally off for sure since it was neither dramatic or thrilling for me and did not kept me that entertained either. (5/10)
