Drift

Description
After their mother escapes from Sydney to Margaret River in the 1970’s, the two Kelly brothers spend their youth searching for the perfect wave. Out of necessity the family launches a backyard surf business ‐ re‐thinking board design, crafting homemade wetsuits and selling merchandise out of their van. Battling big waves, small town conservatism and criminals, the brothers give rise to a global brand. A story of passion, corruption, friendship and loyalty, deadly addictions and fractured relationships, Drift tells a tale of courage and the will to survive at all odds.

The obstacles that the Kelly brothers encounter are as uninspired as the film's treacly lessons about brotherhood and staying true to one's principles.

As has always been the case, well choreographed surf sequences are a delight to behold on the big screen, but also having always been the case, cliché and messy drama is not.

I'm a sucker for films with great surfing footage, let alone wacky '70s hairstyles. But this overlong, cliché-infested Aussie period drama tested my patience.

A good-looking, if cliched, ride through early Aussie surf history

Has genial moments, but they're lost in a sea of boilerplate incidents and prefab characters. Surfing sequences are easily as striking as what we see in documentaries about the sport.

The surfing scenes are exhilarating, the waves more terrifying than anything Eli Roth or James Wan could come up with.

The acting is quite good, natural and fresh, and the surfing footage is magnificent. "Drift," though, is a weird mix, and not always successful.

The surfing sequences are impressively filmed, but on dry land the unexciting narrative plods along to a predictable conclusion.

The leads are engaging, and Pollard in particular projects an easygoing, friendly machismo. Where the movie routinely disappoints, though, is in pursuit of a perfect storm of conflict story lines ...

Certainly atmospheric but depressingly predictable, Drift is more stimulating visually than dramatically.

This poor-surfers-make-good drama from Morgan O'Neill and Ben Nott relies more than it should on toned thighs and taut gluteals. Be grateful; there's nothing to see on dry land that's anywhere near as compelling.

Writer and co-director Morgan O'Neill based Drift on true surfer stories from the era; however, the movie mostly comes across as a grab bag of tired tropes.
