Adrift arrives on Blu-Ray + DVD on 9/4 from Universal #AdriftMovie


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-rayTM Combo 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.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSISAs 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.

My review

This movie is about the true story of Tami Oldham a 23 year old American woman, who is working at a marina in Tahiti. While there, she meets a British sailor named Richard Sharp, even though he is 11 years older then her, they have a deep connection and fall in love. The two of them get an amazing offer to sail a 44 foot yacht from Tahiti to San Diego for a sizable amount of money. The two take off on an amazing journey only to sail into a hurricane and in turn, struggle to survive. It is a suspenseful movie!

I never knew the real story of Tami and Richard as it happened when I was a child. After watching the movie, I ended up watching old news clips and read articles about them. Such a tragic and brave story!
