The survival and flash backs magnified the desire.

The story was very moving. The couple were enjoying each other. The storm that took the life of her boyfriend, wasn’t really known through the challenge she expressed for days at sea. She had a desperate need to survive for herself and imagination of the support her boyfriend gave the ability to sustain the hourly to daily challenges.
Sam Claflin and Shaileen Woodley were amazing and made me feel every emotion like I was there with them. I can't believe how resourceful and strong "Tami" was when put in this ultimate survival situation. And since I hadn't read the book and didn't remember the full story from 1983, I was not prepared for the ending. Please watch this movie!
I would recommend this to a friend
