Jane is one of the two survivors from a plane crash on a snow mountain. With Paul, the other survivor, they try to overcome the difficulties and dangers of the wilderness. They have to pass through an exciting adventure.
In the uneven but intermittently startling and compelling "Survive," Sophie Turner from "Game of Thrones" turns in passionate, empathetic work as Jane, a troubled young woman with a family history of suicides.
As much as Survive escapes becoming completely melodramatic thanks to nuanced performances, there's a disconnect between the characters and the story at hand, often leaning more on its visuals-and Quibi's distribution method hinders its connection.
There are some nice moments of cinematography throughout but overall this is a decent story told in an unconventional manner. Still, if you are shelling out for Quibi, you could do worse than spending ten minutes each day seeing where this story goes.
The phone dimensions are a bit limiting for a show of this scope, but the life-and-death drama eventually sinks its hooks deep into you thanks to a revelatory performance from [Sophie] Turner, who gets some great material to work with.
Sophie Turner takes the lead in a tonally uncertain drama about young people's mental health, set in a psychiatric facility called Lifehouse, equipped with landscaped gardens, a palatial pharmacy, and a "feelings doctor just for you."
