Check out this new behind-the-scenes featurette for J.C. Chandor’s survival tale “All Is Lost,” starring Robert Redford, which hits theaters today. In the featurette, Redford, Chandor, and producers Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb, among others, discuss the production of the film, and its simple but powerful premise: An unnamed man, late in life, takes a many-month sail into the Indian Ocean, and encounters an unforeseen accident that has him fighting for his life over the course of several days.
77-year-old Redford has maybe half a dozen lines throughout the entire film, and gives an impressive physical performance, being thrown around the deck of the boat, flipped around insides its cabin, hoisting himself up the mast and plunged into deep water. (Our TOH! coverage of Redford’s tribute at Telluride is here.)
