Drift Review

It's likely that audiences will, by the end of this year, only be talking about Cynthia Erivo's turn as Elphaba in Wicked: Part One — folks are already anticipating the upcoming adaptation of the iconic stage musical to be the next Barbie — but her performance in Drift doesn't deserve to get lost in the mix. Here, she paints a tender portrait of the weight of grief and the resilience of the human spirit, reminding us why, with only less than a dozen film credits to her name, she's already a two-time Oscar nominee. Though the same level of praise can't be given to the film itself, Erivo's work is so sublime that it almost makes up for it.
