Who is brooke shields dating
The screenplay by Douglas Day Stewart was based on the 1908 novel The Blue Lagoon by Henry De Vere Stacpoole.
The film stars Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins.
Emmeline's desire to stay on the island is linked to an interesting subplot concerning the theme of religious belief.
She has secretly ventured to the forbidden side of the island, and seen the altar that Paddy had previously seen.
They live in their hut, spending their days together fishing, swimming and diving for pearls.
Richard and Emmeline (now portrayed by Christopher Atkins and Brooke Shields) begin to fall in love, although this is emotionally stressful for them because of their lack of education on human sexuality.
After Emmeline regains her ability to walk, they go skinny dipping in the lagoon and then swim to shore.
Still naked, Richard and Emmeline discover sexual intercourse and passionate love.
The film contained a substantial amount of sexual content, and Shields was depicted as nude in many of the scenes.
Richard carries her to the other side of the island and places her on the altar, offering a prayer to God.
Emmeline recovers and Richard admits to his fear of losing her.
Sometime later, their relationship suffers a major blow when a ship appears for the first time in years.
Richard's desire to leave comes into conflict with Emmeline's desire to stay and she does not light the signal fire.
Now alone, the children go to another part of the island and rebuild their home.
