Dir. J.C. Chandor, USA, 2013, 106 min., PG-13, DCP Official Website
Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. Academy Award® winner Robert Redford stars in this open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements. Written and directed by J.C. Chandor (MARGIN CALL) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.
“Chandor delivers pure cinema. Thrilling and adventuresome, this is a career highlight from the uniquely sympathetic Robert Redford.” —Jordan Hoffman, Film.Com
“Even as ALL IS LOST expands Chandor's range with a far more engaging and determined work, the true auteur… is Redford himself. As the camera hovers inches from his iconic blue eyes, the actor takes hold of the material and infuses it with a mortality that demands no explanatory dialogue.” —Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
