Islands In The Stream is a dramatic retelling of Ernest Hemmingway's novel of the same name. Thomas Hudson (George C. Scott) is an artist who has become disillusioned with the world of the 1940s. He has moved to the Bahamas to get away from the petty distractions of modern life. Rather than worry with politics, Thomas lives a free life on an island. One of his main concerns is looking after his friend Eddy (David Hemmings). Later in the story Thomas's three sons Joseph (Julius Harris), Andrew (Brad Savage) and Tom (Hart Bochner) visit their father. A fishing expedition serves to draw the once alienated family members back together. The boys depart for America with Tom informing his father that he is joining the British effort in the war. Still later Thomas's ex-wife Audrey (Claire Bloom) pays him a visit. Her intentions are to reunite with her former lover but fate intervenes. Their young son Tom has perished in the war, further estranging Thomas and Audrey. Thomas must now decide if he will forgo his independent life and aid others who have had their lives upset by the war. Franklin J. Schaffner directs this 1977 film.moreless
