I mean really, how bad can it be, with and hour and a half of sailboat on film and one of the best popular actors of our time?
The trailer I saw made me worry that the movie would not get the sailing details correct or realistic. I am good in the agreement between an artist and the audience in playing my part in the suspension of disbelief, but some times the artists can ask a bit much. I was also concerned that the movie might just be a vehicle for Mr. Redford to be on screen. Actually that was less of a concern because I don't really know of any roles he has played that I haven't enjoyed watching. He and Paul Newman, his on screen partner a few times, have aged in roles and on screen more elegantly than most and retained their charm and charism thru out. I miss Paul.
The article gives a description of the movie that contains this quote from it's director, and it is what has won me over again and got me looking forward to seeing the movie when I can:
