It seems everyone at the Cannes Film Festival last week was raving about All Is Lost, the latest film from Margin Call director J.C. Chandor’s. At the age of 76, Robert Redford, who stars as the only actor on screen for an hour and forty-five minutes is receiving rave reviews for his work in the survivalist tale. He plays an unnamed man piloting a yacht in the Indian Ocean, whose boat is struck by a shipping container, tearing a hole in its hull. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meagre supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face. Beyond a brief opening narration, Redford plays the role without dialogue. All Is Lost opens in the U.S. on October 25. Take a look at the ominous first clip below.
