Tami Oldham Ashcraft: ADRIFT
Shailene Woodley discusses 'Adrift' and that shocking, true twist (spoilers!)
Please refresh the page and retry. T here are few forces on Earth more powerful or deadly than a Category 4 hurricane. These storms can stretch for hundreds of miles over the ocean. At its centre a category 4 generates winds of nearly kmph and waves more than a hundred feet in height. The typical energy discharged over the lifetime of one of these storms is equivalent to more than 10, nuclear bombs. They have sunk fully-laden cargo vessels, devastated coastal communities and killed tens of thousands.
In September , the future seemed bright for Tami Oldham Ashcraft. What at first seemed like a good business decision for a couple as much in love with sailing as they were with each other soon became a nightmare. They battled 40 foot waves and knot winds as they tried to run north of Hurricane Raymond. While they desperately battled against the category four hurricane, it showed no signs of abating. Then Hurricane Raymond changed direction, stalking them like prey. It shows the yacht capsizing after Hurricane Raymond hits, it shows Sharp injured, and it shows Ashcraft in charge of getting them home. But real life, as it often is, was much more harrowing.
Based on a true story and set in , the film stars Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin as a couple who are stranded in the middle of the Pacific Ocean after a hurricane , and must find their way to Hawaii with a damaged boat and no radio. Adrift was released in the United States on June 1, by STXfilms and received mixed reviews from critics, who praised Woodley's performance and the cinematography but criticized the familiar narrative. Tami screams in anguish and it is revealed that she is all alone, with no ships or land in sight. Five months before the hurricane, Tami arrives in Tahiti on board the schooner Sofia and meets Richard Sharp, a British sailor. Richard invites Tami for dinner aboard his boat Mayaluga.
If you've seen any of the trailers for the new movie Adrift in theaters now , then you know that it's based on a true story. The movie depicts both the events leading up to their trip as well as the storm and its aftermath, but the movie doesn't quite tell the whole story.
