   Movie Summary: [Drama]

    For his first major project after TITANIC, DiCaprio chose this adaptation of Alex Garland's novel of disaffected youth in the computer age. He is Richard, a morally empty American traveller in Thailand who is given a map to an idyllic and secret communal island paradise by a manic stranger. Upon his arrival on the uncharted island with his two French travelling companions, Richard eases into a serene existence of getting high, laying on the beach and fishing. When a series of violent occurrences (beginning with a brutal shark attack) upset the peaceful daily life in the commune, he finds that what first appears to be a peaceful, multi-cultural utopian society is in fact the key to unlocking primal instincts in its inhabitants (a la LORD OF THE FLIES) and ultimately himself.
