Re: This should be a good movie.
He is alone it looks like. Here's a vague synopsis. I noticed an old friend of mine is one of the producers too.:
A film that's intriguing on many levels is J. C. Chandor's All Is Lost. Not only does it give Robert Redford his first bit of heavy lifting in front of the camera since Lions For Lambs, but it's a chance to see what the talented Chandor (director of Margin Call) can do with the perennially tricky open-water storyline. With its Cast Away-like premise, the Chandor-penned one-hander lures Redford into a yacht, and, by the looks of this still from the film, then procedes to try to drown him. Things look pretty bleak for the great American in this picture, although on a positive note, at least he doesn't have a Bengali tiger, a hyena and a nobbled zebra to contend with.As we reported back in December, Chandor's friendship with Redford has blossomed since his debut, excellent Wall Street drama Margin Call, appeared at Sundance last year.
