In English, Croatian, Bosnian & Italian / English subtitles
90 min

Finally, just what rom-com fans have been craving: a bisexual Balkan version of Mamma Mia! Set on a sun-soaked tourist island off Croatia's Adriatic coast, this lighthearted midsummer sex comedy marks a sharp change of direction for Bosnian writer-director Jasmila Žbanić, whose two previous features were both bleak, award-winning dramas about the lingering scars of war. -- Love Island is a brightly colored cocktail of romantic cliches, broad humor and bombastic Bollywood-style musical numbers. But it is also a lively, escapist fantasy with an infectious lust for life.
