Islands in the Stream is a 1977 adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's posthumous novel of the same name, published in 1970. Set in 1940, sculptor Thomas Hudson (George C. Scott) is a man living comfortably on the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. Invading his comfortable isolation are three sons he hasn't seen in years: Tom (Hart Bochner), David (Michael-James Wixted) and Andrew (Brad Savage), ranging in ages from 10 to 19 years old. The three boys are from a previous marriage. Originally bitter that Hudson abandoned them, the sons eventually warm up to their father and spend an idyllic summer of swimming and fishing. When the boys finally leave, Hudson has formed a close bond, but when World War II approaches, he finds that relationships are about more than just love. Eventually, Hudson gets involved in a plot to deliver some Jewish refugees to the island of Cuba. Islands in the Stream is directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, from a screenplay by Denne Bart Petitclerc.moreless
