Capsule reviews of feature films

ADRIFT. 1 star. Dead in the water sea-faring adventure/survival yarn, based on a true story, about a couple (Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin) sailing across the Pacific when a storm disables the boat and causes serious injury. A nice-looking movie, but the love-story chemistry between the two leads is poor. 2 hrs. PG-13 (violence) – Gary Thompson

It just won't stick with you the second you leave the theater.
