News of the World

Less a proper coming-of-age movie than a posh version of Home And Away.

The film's biggest problem is its repetitive, meandering script, a catalogue of coming-of-age clichés -- the first date, the first kiss, the first sip of booze -- that can't find anywhere new to go.

Daily Mirror [UK]

Does the film say anything new? No. And does the story transcend its gloomy premise with a taut narrative? Nope.

Feels like a pointless, halfhearted attempt at a South Asian Scenes from a Marriage.

Guardian

The tale is told competently enough, but the central relationship between the parents, Clarice and Mathias, is unsatisfying...

Fan The Fire

This is a mature and thoughtful drama that absorbs the viewer into the world of the family, and leaves you as emotionally bruised and drained as the characters themselves.

David Aldridge
Radio Times

While it may not tell us anything new about the human condition, it is beautifully shot and impeccably acted, especially by screen newcomer Neiva.

Film4

Elegantly scripted, elegantly acted and elegant looking, by avoiding obvious dramatic fireworks, Adrift turns out to be a slow-burning, coming of age sparkler.

Little White Lies

Dhalia gives the film a glossy sheen (with the slightest undercurrent of Oedipal tension), but Adrift never really moves beyond the tale of one little rich girl's awakening.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

The shores of Buzios in Brazil beckon in a drama about infidelity and sexual awakening which mainly settles for being easy on the eye.

Kate Stables
Total Film

The real standout here is newbie Laura Neiva who plays Filipa with a convincing mix of minxy manipulation and blundering vulnerability.

Empire Magazine

Vincent Cassel is in typically commanding form, showing off his surprising mastery of Portuguese, in a thoughtful and beautifully shot movie about love, lust and growing up.

Mercifully, Vincent Cassel provides a strong lifeline...

The film may lack edge but it is always engaging.
