The Blue Lagoon [DVD] [1980]

Randal Kleiser's beautifully photographed cult classic The Blue Lagoon gets top-shelf treatment on this DVD release. The disc offers both a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a standard full-frame 1.33:1 image. The widescreen transfer captures more of the beautiful locations and is preferable. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish track has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include two commentary tracks -- one by the director, writer, and Brooke Shields, the other by the director and Christopher Atkins. Other bonuses include a Brooke Shields photo album, a "making of" featurette, a theatrical trailer, production notes, and talent files. Fans of the film will get everything they could hope for on this release, while fans of gorgeous cinematography will also want to give this fine disc a look.

Synopsis

The Blue Lagoon
This 1980 version of the oft-filmed Henry Devere Stackpoole novel The Blue Lagoon was the first to be stamped with an "R" rating. The basic story remains unchanged. Two very small children, a boy and a girl, are shipwrecked on a lush tropical island. They are cared for by fellow castaway Leo McKern. When he dies, the kids, played with a minimum of clothing by Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins, have no one but each other. When they grow into teen-hood, they also fall madly in love. Heavily reshaped and reedited before its release, The Blue Lagoon's principal attribute is the lush photography by Nestor Almendros. In 1990, a sequel was made, Return to the Blue Lagoon. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
