Adrift: Film Review

Shailene Woodley proved she was a great actress when she found fame with her breakthrough role in The Descendants (although she’d been around much longer) but I almost forgot about her talent thanks to the woeful Divergent franchise. With Big Little Lies and now Adrift, Woodley reminds us how capable she is of putting on a truly impressive performance.
