“An expertly paced thriller that never misses a note.” - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

All Is Lost is a technically dazzling, emotionally absorbing, often unexpectedly beautiful experience.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Redford, who can play intelligence, wit and nuance to a camera like nobody's business, holds us in his grip. It's a master class in acting." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


Oscar-winner Robert Redford stars in All Is Lost, a gripping open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Written and directed by JC Chandor (Margin Call), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience. Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner's intuition, and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself facing his mortality head on. (Dir. by JC Chandor, 2013, USA, 106 mins., Rated PG-13) Digital
