(2013) (Robert Redford) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
