In the Victorian period, two children are shipwrecked on a tropical island in the South Pacific. With no adults to guide them, the two make a simple life together, unaware that sexual maturity will eventually intervene.
In this sequel to The Blue Lagoon (1980), two children are stranded on a beautiful island in the South Pacific. With no adults to guide them, the two make a simple life together and eventually become suntanned teenagers in love.

Paddy, Richard and Emmeline find themselves with no food and no water stuck in the middle of nowhere.

The Blue Lagoon - check out what this teenager went through after watching it!
When I was 17 years old I stayed up till 3am one night to watch a late showing of this film. I had seen clips of 'The Blue Lagoon' when I was younger and it always remained embedded in my mind. The truth is that no movie has ever affected me like this one. I didn't know what force made me feel such deep sensations - whether it was the magnificent exotic island, Emmeline's beauty, the heart-capturing sound track or a combination of all - all I knew is that I longed to be there. I longed to be in such an idealistic and beautiful haven (no matter how unrealistic it seemed). But now I've come to live in the 'real world'. All I can do now is appreciate the idea of the film and the important themes it represents. Such a dream only exists in Heaven.
