“YOU WILL SURELY WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH THE HEARTY TITLE CHARACTERS OF MEN ON BOATS”
“Backhaus’s lively script…brought to infectiously vivid life [by] Will Davis’s highly ingenious direction … The cast, the director and the design team…delightfully recreate the rhythms, rush and terror of life on the water.
Rendered in a carefully exaggerated style that both teases and cozies up to the clichés of the archetypal hero adventurer.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Ten explorers. Four boats. One grand canyon. A true(ish) story.
