The Shallows
Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Writer: Anthony Jaswinski
Cast: Blake Lively, Óscar Jaenada
Seen on: 1.9.2016

Plot:
Nancy (Blake Lively) has been looking for a beach in Mexico where her mother surfed when she was pregnant with her. Since Nancy neither knows the exact location of the beach, nor its name, this has proved to be difficult, but she was finally successful. Leaving her best friend in the hotel, a local (Óscar Jaenada) drives Nancy to the beach so she can get in a good day’s surfing. There is practically no one there and Nancy enjoys the water – until she’s actually all alone and attacked by a shark who cuts off her way back to shore.

There is not a boring minute in The Shallows, although the film does have a few other issues. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it for the most part.
