Reviews

  • "The film is relatively sparing in how it depicts said atrocity, but the horror of it still comes through, while never distracting from the delicate bond that emerges between Jacqueline and Callie (Alia Shawkat), another ex-pat working as a tour guide through the ruins."
    - ConsequenceLiz
  • "Erivo is not the only reason to see DRIFT. But the actor most certainly is the reason to see it ASAP."
    - Rolling Stone
  • "Drift, a patient character study set on a craggy Greek island, proves a mesmerizing showcase for the actress Cynthia Erivo’s talents."
    - The New York Times
