The Blue Lagoon (1980)

On a journey to San Francisco, Richard, his father, and cousin Emmeline find themselves on a ship about to explode. Rushed to a lifeboat with Paddy Button, the two children escape while their father (and uncle) are on another lifeboat. In the chaos following, the lifeboats are separated. Paddy, Richard, and Emmeline find themselves with no food and no water stuck in the middle of nowhere. After some time, the three come across an uncharted paradise, where Paddy quickly teaches the children fishing, hunting, and building. After maybe a month or two, Paddy gets very drunk off a barrel of rum found on the island when they first arrive and drowns in the middle of the night. Emmeline and Richard, now alone and very scared, move location and rebuild their island home. Many years later, the two young teenagers have developed a genuine home, but hormones and feelings between the two strain their friendship until Richard, who is still very determined to reach San Francisco.
