A good performance of actors very touching and with an alchemy that works perfectly. A very good realization of this true story to discover allowing these young actors to shine in another register.

Really drawn from this couple e sea in 1983 or the woman remained alone 41 days at sea adrift and in a huge resourcefulness! The courage of this young woman of 24, with a boat like the hat. (especially in the end have seen the real protagonist she is still sailing!). Otherwise scenario side that alternates before, during, it's very late especially editing. A beautiful achievement (bravo for the storm). A film that plays on feelings, emotion, sadness and at the same time the will to succeed. I had a great movie

Tami and Richard are on a boat. Richard falls into the water ... "Drifting" is adapted from a true story. In 1983, in Tahiti, Tami Oldham met Richard Sharp. The two lovers decide to ferry a sailboat to California. But the boat, caught in a hurricane, dismays and drifts for forty-one days to Hawaii.
An Icelandic filmmaker in Hollywood, who began his career with small Icelandic films ("Jar City") before conscientiously signing up soulless blockbusters ("Everest"), Balthasar Kormakur hesitated between two posters. The first shows the two front-to-front browsers facing adversity. The second, more agonizing, photographs the immense and motionless ocean. By choosing the first, he draws Drifting towards the love story. And that's a shame. Five years ago, on a similar theme, J.C. Chandoor had achieved a tour de force: filming a single man aboard a boat that flows without voiceover or flashback. "Drifting" does not have the strength of "All is lost".
If his first shot is striking, filming Tami regaining consciousness aboard a ship devastated by the hurricane and looking in vain for his fallen companion, the rest does not have the same strength. She is seen picking Richard up and trying to repair the boat and steer him to the ground. But this story is interspersed with useless flashbacks that tell their meeting and their love at first sight a few months earlier in a Tahitian postcard setting. Added to this is the sleight of hand "Pi's Story", which we feel coming for miles.
In short "Drifting" is not the aquatic survival that I expected even if Shailene WOODLEY, his lead actress, made famous by "Divergent" and "Our contrary stars", who co-produced the film, gives of his person with a bluffing energy :-)
