ALL IS LOST (12A)

WHO’S IN IT?

Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid)

WHO’S BEHIND THE CAMERA?

J.C. Chandor (Margin Call), director, writer; Neal Dodson (Periods.), Anna Gerb (Blood), Justin Nappi (Arbitrage) and Teddy Schwarzman (Broken City), producers; Alex Ebert (My Big Break), composer; Frank G. DeMarco (Rabbit Hole) and Peter Zuccarini (A Letter to True), cinematographers; Pete Beaudreau (XX/XY), editor

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A lone sailor (Redford) on a boat in the middle of the Indian Ocean discovers his vessel is slowly sinking after a collision with a shipping container, and as radio equipment fails him and a storm closes in he finds himself staring his own mortality right in the face…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Promising a cinematic experience like no other this year, with a film that’s all atmosphere and little to no real dialogue – Robert Redford, the only actor in the entire film, is mostly silent during its entirety – All Is Lost stands as one of the most noteworthy experimental films of the year as well as one of the most intense and heart-breaking.
