Adrift Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin movie review.jpg

Adrift — Running Time: 1:38 — Rating: PG-13

Early warning: I loved and admired “Adrift” without any reservation and am thoroughly pleased to be able to write about it. Director Baltasar Kormakur delivers the emotions of a young couple as they fall in love and then as they endure the massive hurricane of 1983 at sea.
