Blu-Ray Review: THE BLUE LAGOON (1980) starring Brooke Shields

Apr 12 2017

I was 10 years old when The Blue Lagoon was released in cinemas.  In 1980 it was a prohibited film for children under 18 because it showed a lot of nudity even if it was just a sensuous story of natural love starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. I watched it for the first time when I was 18 and it felt really like porn back then (giggling). I am glad Eureka Entertainment has just released it in Blu-ray in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition because it has brought back memories of those innocent times. Compared to sexy movies shown on TV these days, The Blue Lagoon is a very candid film. The lush beauty and splendour of a South Pacific paradise is vividly captured in this version of Henry De Vere Stacpoole’s 1903 novel.
