Enter "Adrift," based on the harrowing, real-life story of Tami Oldham, who sailed off on a romantic voyage from Tahiti to San Diego in 1983 with her fiance, Richard Sharp, and ran into a brutal hurricane.Oldham wrote of the ordeal – 41 days on the open seas in a damaged 44-foot sailboat – in her book, "Red Sky in Mourning," and if you haven't read it yet, good: Stop Googling and see the film first. Flashback to five months earlier, when Tami arrives in Tahiti, a 23-year-old free spirit with no clear life plans.Staring at the crimson sky one day, Tami proclaims it to be red.Then disaster strikes, and suddenly these exceedingly capable people seem helpless against the ferocity of nature. At the worst moment, Richard fastens himself in, and shouts to Tami through the raging winds to go down below, where she'll be safer.
