MOVIE REVIEW

Capsule Review: In Islands, a middle-aged Filipino immigrant who has lived with his parents his entire life faces the prospect of being alone as his aging father’s health declines rapidly. A quaint, quiet, and somewhat somber drama, the movie is driven by a pensive performance by Rogelio Balagtas. He shares an awkward but believable chemistry with Sheila Lotuaco, who plays his father’s caregiver. A decent though not particularly powerful character study, Islands appears to do what writer/director Martin Edralin set out to do, but its slow pace and minimalist charm will only appeal to a small subset of moviegoers.
