The Blue Lagoon by Henry de Vere Stacpoole

The Blue Lagoon is the story of two cousins, Dicky and Emmeline Lestrange, stranded on a remote island with a beautiful lagoon. As children, they are cared for by Paddy Button, a portly sailor who drinks himself to death after only two and a half years in paradise. Frightened and confused by the mans gruesome corpse, the children flee to another part of Palm Tree Island. Over a period of five years, they grow up and eventually fall in love. Sex and birth are as mysterious to them as death, but they manage to copulate instinctively and conceive a child. The birth is especially remarkable: fifteen-year-old Emmeline, alone in the jungle, loses consciousness and awakes to find a baby boy on the ground near her. Naming the boy Hannah (an example of Stacpooles penchant for gender reversals), the Lestranges live in familial bliss until they are unexpectedly expelled from their tropical Eden.

Before I Go to Sleep Movie Review– Just Seen It

Before I Go to Sleep review – enjoyably preposterous

T he last time Nicole Kidman made headlines, she was starring in Grace of Monaco , a "worse than Diana " disaster that Kidman presumably wishes she could forget — as do most of the people who saw it. In this dourly lively amnesiac thriller from the director of 's unmemorable Brighton Rock remake, that wish comes true. Not only does Kidman play a character who cannot recall her own life from one day to the next, she plays it well enough to expunge the memory of Olivier Dahan's right royal catastrophe, and to remind us just how good she was at playing borderline bewildered in the career-high psycho-chiller The Others. Kidman is Christine, a middle-aged woman who wakes every morning with no memory of her life from her mids onwards. Recognising neither the man in her bed nor her own face in the mirror, Christine must begin every day with a catch-up lesson delivered in tired but endlessly patient tones by Ben Colin Firth : he is her husband; she was in an accident; she has amnesia; tonight she will fall asleep and forget everything — again.

Parents say

She was in a car accident over a decade ago. - As bits and pieces of her memories unfold, the shocking truth and terrifying moments of "the accident" come together to disclose a great twist within a unique storyline. A bit far-fetched here and there, but who cares
