“Fans of Paul Thomas Anderson or Atom Egoyan may want to take note of Alfredo De Villa... the Mexican-born director is putting his own distinct stamp on the American drama genre.”
“A delicate piece with good performances.”
“De Villa has a sharp eye for details that articulate unspoken grief and isolation in people. His film is like a good short story, where there are no wasted moments and an economy of expression allows the story to achieve maximum impact.”
“ ‘Adrift’ is a small film with great humanity
and deserves a broader audience.”
“...another tough-love valentine to New York...
‘Adrift in Manhattan’ is an actor’s dream.”
