A completely “under the radar” movie entitled THE BLOCK ISLAND SOUND appeared on Netflix on March 11, 2021. The film plays out early as an environmental thriller but quickly turns into something much more. Quickly buried among Netflix’s huge catalog, co-host Eric found it and watched it “on the blind.”
When fish begin to wash ashore upon the beaches of Rhode Island’s Block Island, Audrey (Michaela McManus) is sent by the EPA to check out the circumstances. Originally an islander, she stays with her father Tom (Neville Archambault) and brother Harry (Chris Sheffield). Soon her father disappears at sea, and Harry begins to do his own investigation that may show a connection between his father’s disappearance and the animal deaths.
The movie was co-written and directed by brothers Kevin and Matthew McManus. After a run at festivals (including Fantasia), the movie quickly received quality reviews from numerous outlets. THE BLOCK ISLAND SOUND was even noticed by such outlets as the Austin Chronicle. Dark Discussions takes a look at this interesting film and are joined by actor Dan Lench to get further perspective.
