Ashley and Mike are going on vacation to improve their marriage.  Mike had an affair he hopes taking Asley on her long-awaited trip will the best way.  He hopes she will stop remembering the past and look towards their future.  On their first day, Ashley explains her family’s history with the island.  It includes love, loss, and guilt.  But she continues to look for the joy in the trip. And that’s when she finds an ankle bracelet with a message of love and hope.  She decides to keep it and enjoy her trip.  The next day, she notices the bracelet is gone.  She believes a maintenance man stole it but Mike warns her that she has no proof.  Ashley can’t let it go because she has a bad feeling something has happened.  By the end of the movie, there will be several dead bodies, a drug ring, and an affair exposed.

Killer Island is properly named.  The number of killers and deaths on this island grow with no sign of slowing down.  While you know who committed the current murder, you are left hanging in the wind for the reason why she was killed.  And it is deeper than you would believe.  While this movie is a new take on the mystery plot, don’t be surprised if you see it on Lifetime under a different name.  Watch this movie when you need to kill time but don’t open the wine.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

Eli Rosenberg is headed to Meharry Medical College when he is pulled over by the police.  Once the officer sees he is from New York and Jewish, he is harassed.   Michael DuBois is headed to Meharry Medical College when he is pulled over by the police.  Once the officer sees he is in a nice car and black, he is harassed.  During 1967, Meharry Medical College is an all-black college in Tennesse.  Once Eli and Michael arrive on campus they are given room assignments.  When they are mistakenly given the same room, Michael is asked to move.  This instantly creates a larger wedge between each man.  While they battle each other, they both have a hard time on campus.  Michael is constantly taunted for being rich and the son of a legacy doctor.  While Eli is constantly tormented for being the first of 2 white students.  This campus is a powder keg and if it does not get behind all its students, it will explode.  But first Eli and Michael must get behind and support one person: themselves.  Only then, they can help and support each other and the campus.

Based on a true story, this movie shows prejudice on both sides of the fence.  Also, it shows the true meaning of college.  You aren’t just there to get a degree but get a deeper understanding of the world around you and, in turn, of yourself.  You will witness this growth from each student as well as the teachers.   Some people change sooner than others, but everyone has a defining moment.  From the sets, costumes, and historical events, this movie hones on the period with razor precision.  However, a 60s backing track to the film would have placed it more within the period.  This is a movie that must be witnessed.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars
