Drift

Directors:Ben NottMorgan O’Neill, Main Cast: Myles PollardXavier SamuelSam Worthington

I like Aussie movies and surf movies and this is a nice combination. A bromance in the sixties/seventies and the origin of surf gear labels in Western Australia. There are all the cliches: strife and reconciliation between the brothers, the hot but tough girl for whom both brothers fall, the Man and living outside society, the hippie/spirit guide guy who ends up saving the day (kind of a long cameo of Sam Worthington), etc. It is not Big Wednesday but, even with all its flaws, it is quite enjoyable and the cast does an honest job. The scenery, the atmosphere and water scenes are compelling. —6.5/10
