What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
John DeFore quote iconIdyllic adventure goes awry in 'Adrift'.

24.com
Bronwyn McKay quote iconAdrift is, much like Wolfgang Petersen's The Perfect Storm (2000), a perfect disaster movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you think twice about going sailing. But it is also an amazing, inspiring true story about a human being’s will to survive in the worst of circumstances.

Jim Judy quote iconWith solid performances from the leads and a believable romantic chemistry between their characters, one ends up caring about them and how things will play out.

Tomatometer quote iconAdrift sails smoothly between love story and survival drama, thanks in large part to a gripping central performance from Shailene Woodley.
