TUBI EXCLUSIVE: Castaways (2023)

In the aftermath of an apocalyptic event, Emily (Paige McGarvin, Shark Season) and Cara (Sofia Masson, Girls Getaway Gone Wrong 2) are seemingly the only two survivors of an ocean liner wreck. They wash up on a gorgeous island — the film was made in Belize — and start to build a new life for themselves and even fall in love. But this heaven on earth is changed when Finn (Samuel Braun) shows up, casting their future in doubt. Does he really know where other survivors are? Or does he have bad intentions for both of them?

Directed and written by Ilyssa Goodman, this film actually doesn’t come across as exploitative in its romantic elements and doesn’t even try to set up that Finn can break up Emily and Cara. It allows both women to come across as strong and capable in the face of danger and the unknown, while also allowing love to break through how neither of them has ever been able to make love last before.

Seeing as how Tubi has been making sequels to several of their films, I can definitely see more of their adventures in the future. I have to say that this is one of the more high quality originals that has been on the streaming service.

You can watch this on Tubi.
