Must-watch movies on Netflix: Adrift

Release Year: 2018

Directed By: Baltasar Kormákur

Starring: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Jeffrey Thomas, Elizabeth Hawthorne, Grace Palmer

Probably one of the most underrated titles of 2018, Adrift borrows its narrative from the true story from the events of Hurricane Raymond in 1983. Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin star as Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp, a young couple unexpectedly embarking on a sailing trip ahead of a catastrophic hurricane. After sailing into the storm, Tami wakes up to discover Richard has sustained serious injuries and their boat has seen far better days. Doing everything she can to survive, Tami uses all of her strength to save herself and the man that she loves.

Adrift premiered in theaters in June 2018 to minor box office impact but mostly positive reviews. Critics praised Woodley’s performance, which just might be one of her most gripping dramatic roles to date. Although savvy viewers might see the big twist coming, its reveal will still give you an emotional wallop in the gut and send your heartstrings adrift. It’s both a survival drama and a love story sewed into one hauntingly captivating quilt. Allow Shailene Woodley to take you on an emotional rollercoaster in the must-watch movie Adrift while it’s streaming on Netflix.
