Synopsis: In the Victorian period, two children are shipwrecked on a tropical island in the South Pacific. With no adults to guide them, the two make a simple life together, unaware that sexual maturity will eventually intervene.

Pros: This film idea was new at the time, being wrecked in a place no one could find them. It goes back to almost primal times where they had to use the resources available to them.

Cons: It seems to drag on at a point and you forget what happens.

Rating: 2/5 Stars. I would watch this again but not often. It could be remade in a better way.
