Overview

A man tries to rebuild his life and reconnect with his family after a stretch in prison in this independent drama. Eben Cole Thomas Hildreth is a lobster fisherman who lives and works on a small island off the coast of Maine. Eben takes pride in his work and works hard to provide for his wife, Cheryl Amy Jo Johnson, and daughter, Sara Mackenzie Young. However, Eben also has a temper, and when a pair of commercial fishermen from the mainland try to take over one of his fishing spots, the argument escalates into violence. Eben's attack on the fishermen earns him five years behind bars, and his father Larry Pine tells him he'll no longer have anything to do with him. After serving his time, Eben is released from jail only to find that many of his worst fears have been confirmed: Cheryl refuses to see him anymore, she's moved in with Jimmy Mark Kiely, another local lobster trapper, and she won't allow Eben to visit with Sara now played by Emma Ford. Regarded as a black sheep by the local fisherman, Eben takes a job at a scrap yard to keep body and soul together, but it's not until Popper Philip Baker Hall, a veteran fisherman, befriends him that he begins to regain his self-respect and show the world he's changed. Islander was screened at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.
