Throwback Thursday-The Blue Lagoon (1980)

There is something about being a teenager and growing up that is universal.

In The Blue Lagoon (1980), Victorian era teenagers Richard (Christopher Atkins) and Emmeline (Brooke Shields) are shipwrecked. Finding themselves on a deserted island. While they find a way to survive, they will also discover that nature and hormones will soon intervene. Will Emmeline and Richard ever leave the island and more importantly will their relationship change as their bodies change?

I find this movie to be very interesting. Because the main characters are isolated from the world, especially the very strict Victorian society that they come from, their growth is not stunted by the rules of their era. The actors were also very close to the age of their characters, which always helps.

Do I recommend it? Why not?

  1. I first saw this movie when I was 13, so I’ll stick with “no comment”…
