Must Watch: International Trailer for Heitor Dhalia's Adrift
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to feature this trailer today! Adrift is a little foreign gem I discovered at Cannes thanks to my friend Eric of IONCinema. As time has passed since that fest came to an end, this film has been prominently on my mind for many reasons, most importantly the amazing visuals, the wonderful score, and Vincent Cassel's great performance. Luckily, this trailer gives you a glimpse at all of that, even though it's in Portuguese and features French subtitles. You may not understand the dialogue, but you can certainly understand what's going on. This is a great first look that you just have to see.
Watch the international trailer for Heitor Dhalia's Adrift:
Spending summer with her family, Filipa, a fourteen-year old girl, suffers through the rite of passage into adulthood while discovering love for the first time. A rite filled with anguish when she learns that her father, an author, is having an affair with a foreign woman who lives nearby. But this secret is to be only the first in a series, both enchanting and painful, which she discovers about her family and herself.
Adrift, aka À Deriva in Portuguese, is both written and directed by Brazilian filmmaker Heitor Dhalia, of Nina and Drained previously. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. I gave it a 8.5 out of 10 in my review from the fest. It's currently still looking for a US distributor which I hope it finds soon!
