Synopsis by Hal Erickson
No relation to the Peter Benchley-inspired 1980 adventure film of the same name, 1977's The Island is set during World War 1. British Army officer John Hurt finds himself victimized by forces he can neither perceive nor understand. It develops that he's been set up as the dupe for an insidiously complex trap. And those whom he thinks he trusts, he can't. Made for British TV, The Island manages to pack its story into a succinct 30 minutes.
