Description

Drift is a 2013 Australian film about the birth of the surf industry in the 1970s.

Based on true events, Drift is a story set on Australia's spec­tactacular and rugged coastline in the early 1970s. It begins in a remote coastal town with the two Kelly brothers, who spend their youth searching for the perfect wave. Out of necessity the family launch a backyard surf business; re‐thinking board design, crafting homemade wetsuits and selling their new surf gear out of their van.

Battling killer waves, small town conservatism and hard-core criminals, the brothers persevere, daring to dream of a world where they can surf to live and live to surf.
A story of passion and corruption, deadly addictions and fractured relationships, Drift tells a tale of courage and the will to survive at all odds.

Drift Reviews

“I had a ball in Drift. It's funny and truthful, with solid performances, a tight script and some beautiful, largely credible, surfing footage. That is almost never true of a surfing drama. The story eventually becomes predictable but I didn't mind. The charm and humour largely outweigh the obedience to script formulas, and the surfing takes your breath away. Get on board.” Sydney Morning Herald

“If screen surf perving is your thing, you will revel in Drift. It's a sort of amalgam story of how surf gear culture and business began in the 70s in Australia, dotted with the struggles of two brothers” Urban Cinefile

“Predicting which Aussie films will swamp the box office is near impossible, but in terms of quality, this honest, heartfelt flick well and truly keeps its head above water.” Filmlink

“The filmmakers are so rapt in exploring the 70s surfing culture that they allow the film to proceed in a very leisurely fashion but, strangely enough, although the film is light on plot and cliches are only narrowly avoided, it's so evocative of a time and a place, and so well acted overall, that the languid pacing seems hardly to matter…Pollard and Samuel are excellent as the Kelly brothers, completely convincing in their roles..Worthington contributes a great deal in his key supporting role as the chronicler..But the real star of Drift is Geoffrey Hall's magnificent photography and the evocation of a time and a place when the surf culture was booming.” The Australian

“The film could very easily have devolved into a cornball family drama/sports soap opera, but it remains both steadfastly likable and quietly compelling throughout.” sbs.com.au
