I, like many others, have always felt drawn to the ocean and perhaps that sways my opinion somewhat, but I doubt there will be a more engaging film this year.
‘Our man’ is the sole cast member, yet the end credits roll on forever which just goes to show you how difficult and involving it must have been to pull the intricacies of this film off convincingly, yet, Robert Redford plays his lone part imperiously throughout in this tale of nautical survival against the odds.
2013 was a fantastic year for film and 2014 is off to a cracking start*
*Yes I’m aware this was released on Boxing Day 2013. Details, details…!
