The other night I was over at a friend's and arrived midway through the film "Adrift" on the telly. You know the one that's like "Open Water 2" - the friends who all jump off their yacht without lowering the ladder (duh!!) and end up stuck in the sea while one of the girls has a baby still on board, and they can't get back onto the boat? Anyway, for some reason I was getting quite into it . . . then the ending was so ambiguous, it made me HATE the film.
I have tried so hard to work out what the ending actually MEANT cos it was as if there was essentially two endings, and I'm not entirely sure which one was meant to be the true one. So weird. I have looked up the net and cannot find any definite answers, only speculation.
Why do directors do this? Fair enough if there was a decent explanation for it somewhere to find, that could make you look back at the film and say "ah, I see!" But there isn't. It's just deliberately misleading, from the looks of it just to leave it open for a potential sequel I suppose.
But I can't stop worrying about that poor baby . . .
Anyone seen this film that can shed any light on the ending?
