Hey Femms. Hope you’re enjoying your evening. For tonight’s blog, I will be sharing with you guys another movie promo. The movie that I’m speaking of is, Adrift, that is based on a true story. The trailer just dropped a few days ago so I’ll be sure to leave a link down below. The movie stars Divergent actress Shailene Wood and Hunger Games actor Sam Claflin. The film is expected to hit theaters on June 1st. The story focuses on the characters Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp who become romantically interested in each other.
The year is 1983 when the two young lovers meet each other in Tahiti and begin to fall in love with each other as they go to various places together on the island. Tami soon becomes interested in Richard’s sail boating experiences, especially since she’s an avid sailor herself, and together they plan to go on a sailboat trip after a couple offers up their yacht to be sailed from Tahiti all the way to California. Tami is a bit wary about the long distance but agrees to go. Once they’re out on the ocean though they have no clue of the approaching category five Hurricane Raymond coming their way.
Soon the storm hits and wrecks most of the yacht. Tami wakes up after the storm only to notice Richard is missing. She spots that he has fallen overboard and brings him back to the ship. Sadly, Richard is too injured to sail leaving his survival and Tami’s in her hands. The story is like a crossover of the movies Titanic and The Perfect Storm. This is another one of those film plots of the human spirit and love conquering the impossible. Even though this plot has been done before it still appears to be an intriguing movie. However, will it be able to stand on its own against other films with this plot that have already been out like Disney’s The Finest Hours, Perfect Storm, Titanic, and The Guardian? That’s all for this post ‘til next time.
