I received a copy of the Blu-Ray Adrift to facilitate this review, however, as always opinions are 100% my own.
Adrift now available on Blu-Ray
One of the best things about being an Empty Nester is we don’t have to worry about watching movies that are PG-13 or R Rated. While that isn’t all we watch, sometimes a good old chic flick is in order and being a sport Brady usually watches with me. Adrift was perfect for our night in this past weekend, and we enjoyed the story line as well as the adventures in Adrift. I loved that it was based on a true story, and might have even shed a tear or two. I don’t want to give away the whole story, but their summary is perfect!
As the two sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved.
When all is lost, hope and strength keeps Tami Oldham alive in the dynamic edge-of-your-seat drama, Adrift, arriving on Digital on August 21, 2018 and on Blu-rayTMCombo Pack, DVD and On Demand on September 4, 2018 from STXfilms and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. An unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love, Adrift is “a true, harrowing, emotion-driven survival thriller” (Indiewire) and filled with messages of female empowerment. Starring Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent franchise) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games franchise), Adrift is based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime.
