In this passionate modern day retelling of the classic novel, Emmaline Robinson and Dean McMullen are on two opposing sides of their high school world. But when they are caught in a storm at sea during a Caribbean field trip and stranded on a tropical island, these two teenagers will have to come together in ways they never imagined. Without parents, without cell phones and without help, they will learn how to survive on their own or face the ultimate consequences. As they explore and learn about each other, they also learn about themselves while falling in love, while waiting for rescue on the island.Written by

Male lead Brenton Thwaites recounted that he had never heard of the Blue Lagoon films before, and upon being cast he watched the previous two films for research, though he admitted that he could not bring himself to watch Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991) in its entirety. See more »

I actually really enjoyed this movie and have watched it again several times.
Although it's quite predictable, it's quite a different take on the "stranded on a tropical island" romantic angle. There were quite a few dramatic moments and the lead actors really stepped up. They showed personal strength and courage which is a credit to the writers and it really helped us, as an audience, start to root for the characters.
The movie also benefited from a strong supporting cast as well which really lifted the caliber of this TV movie.
Would definitely recommend to any romance/drama/adventure movie buffs.
