Director J.C. ChandorYear 2013Genre(s) Action, Adventure
A veteran mariner makes a brave voyage into the Indian Ocean on his large yacht, but what should be a relaxing period of contemplation and self-discovery, turns into a hopeless nightmare when he is woken up by the boat crashing into an abandoned shipping container causing significant flooding in the lower cabin and damage to his navigation and radio equipment. Realising he only has a matter of time before his beloved ship sinks to the bottom of the ocean, he sets up his rubber liferaft and awaits some sign of life on the horizon in order to release a flare. However, things aren't looking good with a foreboding, rumbling black cloud up ahead and a dwindling supply of food and water. With elements beyond his control, our man has only his will to survive left to help him.
This survival drama presents to us a heart-stopping, almost hopeless situation taking inspiration from the likes of Robert Zemeckis's 'Cast Away'. Behind the screenplay and direction of this epic is the Oscar nominated J.C. Chandor ('Margin Call') in his second feature, telling the story of human resourcefulness and instinct to go on. After premiering at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, 'All Is Lost' will hit cinemas in the US on October 25th 2013 and the UK on November 29th.
Starring: Robert Redford
