George C. Scott and a fine cast are a pleasure to watch.
24 January 1999 | by (Brea, Ca. USA) – See all my reviews

Scott plays a sculptor living on an island visited by his three sons. This is is an adaptation of a story by Hemingway that works most of the time. The child actors are exceptional in their roles as is the rest of the cast. Probably one of Scotts premiere performances. The story takes many turns, with the finest moments in the first half of the movie. I recommend viewing Islands in the Stream.
