Movie Info

Rike--40, a doctor from Europe--embodies a typical Western model of happiness and success. She is educated, confident, determined and committed. We see Rike's everyday life, as an emergency doctor, before she fulfills a long-held dream and sails out to sea alone in her sailing boat. Her goal: Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. But her dream holiday is quickly broken off on the high seas, when, after a storm, she finds herself near a stricken fishing boat. Around a hundred people are about to drown. Rike follows maritime law and radios for help. As her request is going nowhere, she is forced to make a momentous decision.


Critic Reviews for Styx

This is "All Is Lost" with a spinning moral compass and a topical dimension that proves even more gripping than its brilliantly achieved visceral action.

Carrying practically the entire film, Wolff is never less than remarkable in a demanding role that's 80 percent silence and 20 percent English-language dialogue.

The existential elements of this very contemporary rumination are obvious. Bringing the plight of refugees to the forefront is noble. It's enough to make this excursion, which piques fear, sadness and anger, haunting.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the most compelling cinematic attempts to tackle the ongoing migrant crisis.

Feb 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Styx is not just a movie about refugees but about our current political moment in which intelligent, rational people look at an increasingly narrow-minded, greedy world and despair at the seeming insurmountability of the problems.

Impresses with its clean, purposeful direction even in its elliptical opening scenes, before the plot narrows to a laser focus.
