What does one do on a day off and on a lazy Friday? Go the the movies! This week’s movie was "Drift".
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I love films that are character driven rather than all action and wizzbangery (is that a word? Probably not). It doesn’t have the wizz bang features of Star Trek Into Darkness or the horror of Evil Dead (those two movies were also playing at the same cinema) but what it does have a story with very likeable characters, a real plot, some INCREDIBLE surfing visuals (the photography is just superb) and a superb cast.
A very familiar name/face was in this movie. Lesley-Ann Brandt (who we, of course, know from Spartacus Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena). Lesley-Ann plays an American (this is an Australian movie – a very Aussie movie set in 1973). Lesley-Ann plays an American surfer chick with attitude. Wonderful performances by all the cast.
This movie is destined to be in my DVD collection.
