Starring Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent films) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games films), ADRIFT is based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime. As the two avid sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. ADRIFT is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.
But after a hurricane crippled their yacht, which the couple were delivering from Tahiti to San Diego, the trip turned into a survival tale, as depicted in Adrift (in theaters June 1). USA TODAY reveals exclusive first photos from the movie.
In Adrift, with Sharp injured in the storm, Oldham sails for 41 days to reach safety.
“The idea of portraying the life of a woman whose mere inner strength and sheer willpower carried her through one of the most treacherous situations one could face as a human being was so extremely moving to me,” says Woodley, who learned to sail for the sea story.
Oldham wrote about the ordeal in her 1998 book, Red Sky in Mourning: A True Story of Love, Loss and Survival at Sea. The New Zealand-based Adrift crew spent more than five weeks shooting on the open sea.
“Every single stunt you see in the film where Sam or I are in the ocean is really us in the deep sea,” says Woodley. “Honestly, it was the most fun I’ve ever had filming.”
Director Baltasar Kormákur, who has helmed adventure stories such as 2015’s Everest, says the romantic tale takes a big turn when it becomes an Oldham-led survival epic.
“First of all, we don’t have many survival stories where the survivor is a young woman or a woman at all,” says Kormákur. “How the story intertwines the love between Richard and Tami and the survival tale is compelling. And it asks us the question, ‘What is it that makes us survivors?’ ”
Woodley, set to return for the second season of award-winning Big Little Lies, says she was inspired meeting the real Oldham.
“I learned that in spite of any adversity or trauma Tami has faced in her life, she has chosen to embrace the gift of simply living — the gift of being alive,” Woodley says.

DEADLINE – Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoë Kravitz have closed their deals to return for the second installment of HBO’s Emmy-winning limited series Big Little Lies, all three reprising their roles from Season 1. They’ll be reuniting with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who were previously confirmed to return, along with new cast member Meryl Streep.
Woodley plays Jane Chapman: While processing Perry’s sudden death, Jane is trying to build a new life for herself and Ziggy. Dern is Renata Klein: The epitome of control, Renata is now faced with new challenges in her marriage. Kravitz plays Bonnie Carlson: Bonnie struggles with Perry’s death and is forced to face demons in her past
Kidman is Celeste Wright: Reeling from her husband Perry’s death, Celeste is adrift, but determined to fight for her family and find the woman she once was. Witherspoon plays Madeline Martha Mackenzie: Finding that good intentions don’t always yield good consequences, Madeline confronts the truth of Perry’s death, while coming to terms with her own marriage and traditional notions of family. Streep is Mary Louise Wright: Concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry’s death, Mary Louise arrives in Monterey searching for answers.
Per HBO, the subversive, darkly comedic drama Big Little Lies will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
David E. Kelley will write all seven scripts based on a story by Liane Moriarty, and executive produce; along with executive producers Kidman and Per Saari through Blossom Films, Witherspoon through Hello Sunshine, Bruna Papandrea, Jean-Marc Vallée, Nathan Ross, Gregg Fienberg and Andrea Arnold, who will also direct all seven episodes. Moriarty produces.
The long rumored second installment was officially greenlighted in December with a seven-episode order, matching the length of the first season.
The drumbeat for a second season of Big Little Lies had been growing since the first installment of the adaptation of Moriarty’s novel cleaned up at the Emmys, winning eight in all including Best Limited Series (Witherspoon earned a statuette as an executive producer) and Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for star/exec producer Nicole Kidman. It has since picked up a slew of additional honors, including Golden Globes, AFI Awards, DGA Award for Vallée, a PGA award and SAG wins for Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard, among others.
