“Erivo’s full-bodied commitment to the role, capturing how even the worst experiences can become a part of you, results in a performance so powerful that it’s occasionally too difficult to watch.” ~ Siddhant Adlakha, indieWire
From the producers of Call Me By Your Name and Nomadland, Drift follows Jacqueline (Cynthia Erivo), a refugee on a Greek island. As she tries to survive, cope with her past and gather strength, she begins a healing friendship with a rootless tour guide (Alia Shawkat). We open the film this Friday at the Monica Film Center.
