The Real Castaway Documentary – A review on this cool look into paradise island experience

Did a review of ‘The Real Castaway’. Its a cute / romantic story of a guy who wants to live just like the couple in the movie ‘The Blue Lagoon’. Its a documentary. Here is what the youtube page says

“When Martin Popplewell was 15 years old he watched the film The Blue Lagoon starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. From then on he was determined to live as a castaway on an uninhabited Pacific Island with a girl Friday.

When he realised his dream in 1989 he was just 18 years old. The adventure became a media sensation with journalists flying halfway round the world to cover the story. Martin kept a video diary of his experience.

In 2001 he returned to the Pacific to make a critically acclaimed documentary. The Real Castaway reunites the two castaways on their desert island 12 years after their experience. It’s a story about adventure, growing up and the pursuit of an impossible dream.

In The Times, Matthew Parris described The Real Castaway as “absorbing … visually very beautiful … an extraordinary tale”.”
