Eureka Entertainment are to release THE BLUE LAGOON, a sensuous story of natural love [I didn't write this press release - Ed.] starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins, for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 10 April 2017.
The lush beauty and splendour of a South Pacific paradise is vividly captured in this version of Henry De Vere Stacpoole’s 1903 novel.
Two small children and a ship’s cook survive a shipwreck and find safety on an idyllic tropical island. Soon, however, the cook dies and the young boy and girl are left on their own. Days become years and Emmeline (Brooke Shields) and Richard (Christopher Atkins) make a home for themselves surrounded by exotic creatures and nature’s beauty.
They learn to cope with the bewildering variety of physical and emotional changes that come with adolescence. As they begin to mature, their childhood affections lead to a sensitive and more profound love. But will they ever see civilisation again? The trailer is above.
