Throw a rock into any year's Sundance guide and you're guaranteed to hit at least two or three multi-pronged grave and oh-so-earnest weep-dramas like this one.

You can't build a movie around lingering, soulful shots of the No. 1 train zooming up and down the West Side.

...overall, his [Alfredo De Villa's] latest flick is dramatically tepid.

An all-too-familiar wallow in urban woe and artfully photographed isolation.

A delicate piece with good performances and an intriguing enough setup, the drama ultimately doesn't go anywhere definite or distinctive enough to leave a lasting impression.

The film's most effective moments are its quietest.

Adrift is a small film with great humanity and deserves a broader audience than it's likely to get.

Better directed than written, de Villa's meditation on loss, loneliness, and alientaion in urban New York is downbeat, slow, studied, and a bit pretentious, but it's nicely acted by the entire cast, particularly Victor Rasuk and Dominic Chianese.
