About the Movie
Photographed entirely on 16mm & 35mm film, the breathtaking imagery of DRIFT will be captivating with incredibly vivid color, contrast and depth, qualities that are only available in the film format. DRIFT will look and feel lush and beautiful, each segment highlighted with hypnotic, slow motion images of casting, moving water, and underwater action. Deep, soulful interviews with select "legends of the sport" and others who have shaped the sport, will resonate with a musical score that features the sounds of Jack Johnson’s Brushfire recording artists. This deep rooted passion for the sport will be conveyed by these devoted (and sometimes eclectic) characters that have immersed themselves in the sport and the lifestyle of fly fishing. The fact that each segment tells a completely unique story and focuses on different characters and anglers is one of the many things that sets this project apart from other film and video releases of recent years.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: Manages to get a fair bit right about early 1970s surf culture when it isn't trafficking in the hoariest of David-vs.-Goliath cliches.
Rotten: 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 ...
Rotten: Not so much drifting as veering between storylines, Ben Nott and Morgan O'Neill's Drift often feels like a film with narrative ADD.
This is a film about fly fishing, the other reviews listed are for ANOTHER film. Please ignore the Rotten Tomatoes reviews as they have NOTHING to do with THIS film.
