Islander: The Way Life in Lobstering is in Maine
24 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not from Maine but have visited Maine several times and have been to Vinalhaven as have been members of my family. The movie depicts life as the way it should be on the island. I first saw the movie in Rangeley Maine at a little theater where the producer had been there only a few days prior to me. I purchased the film for me and for family who are lobster fisherman up in Maine. They said it was true to life. I watch the movie over and over again since it depicts life as it is in Maine and also has many story lines as well. It is an excellent film and is too bad it was not shared with the rest of America on the big screen.
