One man, a boat at sea and a series of misfortunes set the scene for this simple and compelling tale. We do not learn the name of the sailor, where he is sailing to or why.
Directed by Academy Award-nominated writer/director J.C. Chandor (Margin Call). The film premiered in 2013 and won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for best actor and was nominated for a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award.
Academy Award winner, Robert Redford, plays the role well.
The story is introduced with the sailor in a life-raft writing a final message to loved ones. The plot then moves back eight days to when the vessel is damaged after striking a half submerged shipping container far from land. The film has almost no dialogue but follows the actions of the sailor as he struggles for survival against the circumstances.
Robert Redford Plays the role of lone sailor in the action/ adventure movie "All is Lost".
