A powerful, love story and an intense struggle between woman versus nature, the movie Adrift will teach you how to love unconditionally, survive and fight for your life with all that you have. Adrift is, without a doubt, one of the most moving, heart-wrenching and captivating movies coming out to theaters. This stupendous film will bring you a wave of emotions and leave you mesmerized from start to finish. Adrift is a true masterpiece and is a movie that everyone needs to see. It has everything and more that equates to a perfect and brilliant film – from breathtakingly beautiful and awe-inspiring cinematography to the extraordinary, acting skills of the unrivaled cast. Adrift will break your heart and heal it all at once.

Adrift is based on the true story of Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp. This film is directed by Baltasar Kormákur. The screenwriters for this marvelous film are Aaron Kandell, Jordan Kandell and David Branson Smith. Adrift captures the beautiful feeling of love at first sight between a magnificent couple who loved with no boundaries. The movie showcased the refreshing feeling of being enamored with someone. Both Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp knew the moment that they met each other that they were destined to be together. Instantaneously, they were able to see how much they had in common – their incredible passion for each other and the thrill of being out at sea and sailing. They were able to share some of the greatest moments together that will last a lifetime. Their love was magical and as if it were taken out of a fairytale storybook.

Richard Sharp eventually got offered a terrific, business opportunity — to sail a yacht from Tahiti to San Diego. They were assured that it was bound to be an unforgettable experience, but they never expected the catastrophe they would encounter while at sea. The loving couple found themselves sailing into one of the most disastrous hurricanes. The storm destroyed their yacht and Richard Sharp was injured from the tragic hurricane. It was up to Tami Oldham to rely on her mental and physical strength to save herself, her loved one and keep alive during the 41 days they were adrift at sea.

Home was too far away for the couple and a safe haven was basically no where to be found in the middle of the ocean. Shailene Woodley did a stupendous job bringing this story to life and portraying the role of the admirable Tami Oldham. Her impeccable acting skills showed the unbelievable story of a phenomenal woman who fought to survive. Woodley left everyone speechless with the passion and feeling she put into one of the best roles she has taken on so far. The outstanding Sam Claflin, who played the role of Richard Sharp, put his heart and soul into this memorable role. We felt the pain he felt, the love he had for Tami and the dire need to continue to live. The cast did above and beyond to make this film as spectacular as it turned out to be. The cinematography was unlike any other film you have seen before. Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin used their endurance and were even the ones who jumped right into the ocean to film all of these touching scenes.

The exceptional cast-members and many celebrities came out to celebrate the premiere of Adrift on May 23, 2018 at the Regal L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles, California. Shailene Woodley looked absolutely stunning in a metallic dress as she was all smiles at the premiere of her movie. Sam Claflin looked super dashing and dapper as he posed on the carpet of the event. The sensational Tami Oldham came out to see her story be told on the big screen. It truly was an honor to see Tami Oldham and the excellent cast and crew attend this prestigious, blue carpet event.


I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the honor of attending the premiere of Adrift and I can’t express into words how much of an impact this movie made on me and how much of an impact it will make to all those who see this stellar film. There is no movie quite like Adrift and it will leave you at the edge of your seat enthralled by every moment of the movie.

For the past two years, the Los Angeles Times has managed to make May the most exciting and incredible month for all #foodies. Every day in May brings a whole new food-inspired adventure with the LA Food Bowl, which celebrates Los Angeles’ unrivaled and spectacular food and drink scene. From the “Things in a Bowl” kick-off party, which featured LA-based restaurants that served their delicious and renowned meals in a bowl, to a fun Mother’s Day pizza event called the “Pizza Fest… A Tutti Pizza,” the LA Food Bowl has brought food lovers an excellent event each day that featured a variety of amazing dishes – from soul food to Filipino treats, seafood, Mexican meals and beyond.

One of the LA Food Bowl’s most-anticipated events is the Night Market. The Night Market is a week-long event held at Grand Park in Downtown Los Angeles. The Night Market is truly a one of a kind, magical experience. Where can you enjoy a celebration of food that spans over a 12-acre area filled with marvelous cuisines from all over the world? The only place you can take part in this remarkable food festival is at the LA Food Bowl’s brilliant Night Market.

The Night Market was absolutely exceptional and it truly surpassed attendees’ expectations. The phenomenal event had 50 different food vendors, outdoor dining areas and terrific, live music that added extra fun for everyone. This year’s Night Market took place from May 16th – May 20, 2018 and had about 45,000 attendees over the five days of the fantastic event.


There were many hidden gems at this year’s Night Market. Kicking off the sensational event on May 16th was a mouth-watering Filipino feast that featured admired chefs Charles Olalia of Ricebar and Cheese and Chad Valencia of Lasa. The following day, on May 17th, was donut heaven for all attendees. Blue Star Donuts, DK Donuts, Dreamy Creations, Glazed Donut Bar and Monarch Donuts all joined in on the fun and gave guests a taste of donut delight. In addition, there was also an Amazon Wine & Prime event with celebrity host Mark Oldman, a wine expert and personality, who presented wonderful wine pairings.

Ain’t nothing but a chicken wing! On Friday, May 18th, Night Market attendees were able to enjoy scrumptious meals with fried chicken. South City Fried Chicken, Dante Fried Chicken, Poppy + Rose and Daddy’s Chicken Shack gave attendees a dish to remember with their out of this world, fried chicken meals. The weekend continued with a wide selection of vendors on Saturday, May 19th. Cousins Maine Lobster, Locol, Dang Brother Pizza, Dreamy Creations, 3 Wheel Cafe, Blast Ice Cream, Wanderlust Ice-cream and many others were at the event and served up some good grub. Saturday’s Night Market event also featured awesome music from the LA-based cumbia band, Very Be Careful and DJ Scott Dallavo with Todd Simon on the trumpet.

The Night Market finished off with a magnificent, charity bake sale on Sunday, May 20th. Pastries from Huckleberry Bakery & Cafe, Milo & Olive, Sweet Rose Creamery, Broken Spanish and Valerie Confections were being sold at the event and all proceeds from the sale benefitted the LA Food Bowl’s charity partner, Food Forward.

It’s clear to see why the Night Market is one of the LA Food Bowl’s most coveted and talked about events. As the sun sets, the lights of the Night Market glow. That’s not the only thing that lights up. In addition, all attendees’ faces light up as soon as they enter the Night Market – it’s an unforgettable night that allows guests to leave the event with a full stomach and a big smile on their face.
