ReviewSource Variety
Review Several lonely big-city lives intersect to a somewhat cathartic effect in "Adrift in Manhattan," Alfredo de Villa's ("Washington Heights") second feature. A delicate piece with good performances and an intriguing enough setup, the drama ultimately doesn't go anywhere definite or distinctive enough to leave a lasting impression...With nearly everyone here grieving over some past or imminent loss, "Adrift" has the slightly over-familiar, borderline pretentious feel of so many melancholic criss-crossers a la "Magnolia" and "Crash," which tether together disparate characters in service of a vague but important lament/prayer for humanity...Fortunately, de Villa, co-scenarist Nat Moss and their actors favor thoughtful restraint over histrionics or gratuitous auteurial dazzle, lending the pic a quiet involvement and sufficient credibility. On the downside, a satisfying payoff never quite arrives...Production package is modest but nicely turned, with Michael A. Levine's score striking the right balance between sorrowful, tense and ethereal moods.

Jamie Tipps, Film Threat ...a quietly moving film about alienation and connection...[with] several superb performances.
Peter Sciretta, Slash Film ...a pleasant surprise. It provides an interesting and intimate snapshot of the life of everyday people in New York City.
