"A woman against nature is kind of rare in film..." - hmv.com talks to Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin and Baltasar Kormákur about new sailing drama Adrift

A new film from Everest director Baltasar Kormákur tells the story of a sailing trip which soon turns into a nightmarish battle for survival in the stormy Pacific Ocean.

Kormákur's latest film stars Sam Claflin and Shailene Woodley as a couple sailing from Tahiti to San Diego when their small yacht is caught in the middle of a hurricane, leaving them stranded in the middle of the Pacific with no radio and a severely battered boat, forcing them to navigate via a sextant and surviving for 41 days on meagre supplies.

Based on the real-life experiences of Tami Oldham Ashcraft and Richard Sharp, two amateur sailors caught in a ferocious Pacific storm in 1983, the film combines a love story with one of loss and survival against the odds, and with the film arriving in stores on Monday (November 5th) we sat down with Sam, Shailene and Baltasar to talk about bringing Tami and Richard's story to life...
