Review: Adrift

17 Jul 18

Not as good as expected

Was really keen to see this, and so went as soon as it came out. With promises that parts were filmed in NZ I was hoping to see glimpses of our shore lines or familiar landmarks, however there were none - except for the odd NZ actor and accent over the radio. Great performances by Shailene and Sam, and some good realistic stormy scenes. However I couldn't help thinking of 'Life of Pi' all throughout the movie and so predicted the ending. But, despite that - my best wishes go out to Tami and her heroic efforts to survive & for what she endured and for what she lost.
