It's hard to imagine being farther off the grid than the weathered yachtsman played by Robert Redford in the majestic, melancholy “All Is Lost.” There he is, solo on a 39-foot sailboat in the middle of the Indian Ocean, taking on water after a freak accident: During the night, while he slept, his boat struck a drifting shipping container, and a corner of the giant corrugated metal box pierced its hull.

Redford's nameless mariner wakes up to find the contents of his galley bobbing like rubber duckies in a bath. But he isn't panicking. He goes about patching the hole, pumping out the water — although, with the electricity out, this is no easy feat.
