QUICK TAKE:
Drama/Suspense: A sailor, 1700 miles from land and traveling alone, must contend with having his sailboat accidentally damaged to the point that he might have to abandon ship.
PLOT:
A never identified sailor (ROBERT REDFORD) is on a solo sailing trip, some 1700 nautical miles from the Sumatra Straits. One morning, he's awakened by a loud thump, only to find water pouring into his cabin from a gaping hole in the side of the 40-foot sailboat. It turns out a large cargo container has floated up and accidentally rammed his ship. The sailor manages to dislodge that after some effort and roughly patch the hole, but his communication gear has become water-logged and he's unable to send out a distress call.

And not being in the shipping lanes, it's unlikely his relatively small sailboat will be seen by another vessel. That puts him in danger as a storm approaches, threatening the stability of his temporary fix, all of which means he may have to abandon ship into his inflatable life raft. With limited provisions, he must use his sailing know-how and related ingenuity to give himself any chance of surviving.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Younger kids won't, but some older teens might show some interest based on the premise.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
