All Is Lost (2013)
During a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, a veteran mariner (Robert Redford) awakes to find his vessel taking on water after a collision with a stray shipping container. With his radio and navigation equipment disabled, he sails unknowingly into a violent storm and barely escapes with his life. With any luck, the ocean currents may carry him into a shipping lane -- but, with supplies dwindling and the sharks circling, the sailor is forced to face his own mortality.

THE SCREEN IS BLACK.

We hear the sounds of gentle waves.

OUR MAN:

13th of July, 4:
50 pm. I’m sorry...

I know that means!little at this

point, but I am. I tried, I think

you!would all!agree that I tried.

To be true, to be strong, to be

kind, to love, to be right. But I

wasn’t. And I know you knew this.

In each of your ways. And I am

sorry. All is lost here... except

for soul and body... that is,

what’s left of them... and a halfday’s

ration.

It’s inexcusable really, I know

that now. How it could have taken

this long to admit that I’m not

sure... but it did. I fought ‘til

the end, I’m not sure what that is

worth, but know that I did. I!have

always hoped for more for you

all...!I will miss you.!I’m sorry.!

OVER BLACK.

The sound of water peacefully running against the bow (front)

of a boat.

TITLE CARD #1 (over black): ALL IS LOST

TITLE CARD #2 (over black): EIGHT DAYS EARLIER

TITLE CARD #3 (over black): ACT ONE (Man vs. Man)

FADE IN:

INT. BOW SLEEPING BERTH OF A 39 FT SAILBOAT - DAWN

OUR MAN is sound asleep as the boat moves up and down through

the small waves that we can hear through the hull of the

boat.

A terrible crunching and ripping noise echoes through the

small space. OUR MAN immediately opens his eyes to the sound

of rushing water.

OUR MAN jumps out of the berth and as his feet hit the ground

they land in several inches of water inside the cabin of the

boat.

2.

He jumps up. As he looks down several small white knock-off

Keds kids sneakers are floating in the water.
