A good movie

1 year, 1 month ago at Aug 29 15:28
To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. The most interesting thing about this movie is that it was starring a very young Nicole Kidman. She would give her breakthrough performance in this movie opening her the doors of Hollywood and she would never look back afterwards. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, even though it was ... read more

John Ingram and his wife Rae, who's recovering from an auto accident, are on their sailboat, becalmed somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Their leisurely isolation is interrupted by Hughie, the lone survivor of a sinking black schooner they spot one morning. Hughie's story doesn't quite gibe, so John boards the schooner to investigate, where he discovers the real truth. When Hughie wakes and realizes where John is, he takes control of the Ingram yacht from Rae, and motors off towards the horizon. Can Rae regain control of the boat and find John before the schooner sinks?

She would give her breakthrough performance in this movie opening her the doors of Hollywood and she would never look back afterwards. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, even though it was maybe nothing really ground-breaking, it was a really solid and entertaining thriller. In fact, many noticed the similarities between this movie and, ‘Nóz w wodzie’, the really impressive debut delivered by Roman Polanski and I think it is a good thing that I saw this movie first as it allowed me to enjoy it more. Eventually, it must be one of the very few movies starring Billy Zane in which ” read more
