It has the potential to be one that people will talk about for a long time, and my suspicion is that you’re really going to want to take advantage of the big screen here, so jump in now.
It’s already got a lot of great press, and has earned the Critics’ Choice Seal of Approval, which is harder to come by than you might think.
Even the most jaded of us, who might wonder about the film with a guy alone… lost at sea…, have to think that Redford didn’t get on board (ha) this project without some compelling reason, and he’s the guy who can give us whatever performance is needed to carry us through.
Take a look at the very cool widget below, and then enter for your chance to catch this one at a theater!
Academy Award® winner Robert Redford stars in All Is Lost, an open-water thriller about one man’s battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
Written and directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros), All Is Lost is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.
All Is Lost opens in NY and LA October 18, nationwide October 25th.
