The original ‘Blue Lagoon’ star returns to familiar territory in this Lifetime original movie, debuting Saturday, June 16 at 8 PM ET.
In Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, overachieving high school student Emma Robinson (Indiana Evans) and slacker Dean McMullen (Brenton Thwaites) find themselves on the same class trip to Trinidad. Though they have little in common, Emma and Dean attend a wild party on a boat, and when Emma falls overboard during a police raid, Dean jumps in to save her. The pair drifts in a motorless dinghy until they end up stranded on a deserted island. While their parents desperately search for them, Emma and Dean are forced to rely on each other for survival, and the more time they spend together the more they realize their attraction to one another. Despite their differences, they eventually create a bond between themselves. But as days on the island become weeks and then months, Emma and Dean wonder if they’ll ever be rescued or if their life on the Blue Lagoon will last forever. Denise Richards stars as Emma’s devoted mother Barbara, who refuses to give up the search for her missing daughter. Christopher Atkins, who starred in the 1980 romance/adventure movie The Blue Lagoon, portrays Mr. Christiansen, a high school teacher who helps in the search for Emma and Dean.
