Mercifully, Vincent Cassel provides a strong lifeline...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 19, 2010
Elegantly scripted, elegantly acted and elegant looking, by avoiding obvious dramatic fireworks, Adrift turns out to be a slow-burning, coming of age sparkler.

November 19, 2010
The shores of Buzios in Brazil beckon in a drama about infidelity and sexual awakening which mainly settles for being easy on the eye.

The film may lack edge but it is always engaging.

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.

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.

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

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

November 10, 2010
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.

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

November 18, 2010
The tale is told competently enough, but the central relationship between the parents, Clarice and Mathias, is unsatisfying...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 17, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 14, 2010
Less a proper coming-of-age movie than a posh version of Home And Away.
