The Islander

The Islander Trailer

I've been viral marketed....but not guerrilla marketed and I'm not going to call out Homeland Security, either. Someone named Eben Cole has been commenting on this site for a while and has been posting to message boards in Maine, and earlier today, Eben, star of the movie was kind enough to leave a comment announcing the website for the movie, The Islander.

The movie was filmed in Rockport and Vinalhaven, Maine and will open in Cambridge, MA on March 9 (although it's been shown in other theatres during the fall). The Portland Phoenix says it's a vibrant portrayal of island life, and judging by the trailer, it's at least a visually accurate picture of Maine island life. From the website:

On a small fishing island off the coast of Maine, families have lived and worked off the sea for generations. Everyone knows each other. Birthright is akin to law and men inherit their fishing territories. Eben Cole, like the other fishermen, continues his family’s legacy of harvesting lobsters from the waters surrounding the island.

Islander is a classic American story, portraying the gravitas in the everyday as one man learns to accept the consequences of his choices with grace. Eben discovers that self-respect is the hardest thing to earn and that in community he must find it. Islander is a authentic portrait of human weakness and human courage
