The film is rated PG-13 for brief strong language.
"All is Lost" stars Robert Redford, who gives what has been termed, "the performance of his life" in this critically acclaimed film. In this role, Redford's character is cast adrift in the Indian Ocean as a solo sailing voyage goes terribly wrong following a crash with a stray shipping container.
Redford's character is mute for most of the film as he battles to stay alive. Through his acting and the film's cinematography, the viewer is left to interpret much about the stranded sailor who is fighting for survival. The gripping story centers on Redford's character challenging the ocean for survival.
"The New York Times" noted that the film features "sharply defined, crisply composed images of his struggle. 'All is Lost' is an appealing and exciting maritime adventure."
