The Real Castaway

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.
