Editorial Reviews

Four different love affairs simultaneously wreak havoc in the lives of the inhabitants of a tropical paradise. A wealthy plantation owner plots murder when he suspects his wife of having an adulterous relationship. At the same time, his sister-in-law is drawn to his enemy, a dedicated black labor leader, and a governor's aide is torn over his scandalous affair with a native woman. Darling and exquisitely filmed on location, this rich romantic story with it's focus on race, passion and politics, was one of the most talked about films of its day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evaluation of Island in the Sun
It was a pretty good story and it was obvious the director went out of his way to include a lot of gorgeous tropical scenery in the movie. Not a great movie, but enjoyable.
