New York, New York, New York, NY - Iconic actress Brooke Shields, 45, is about to release her latest movie, the long awaited sequel to her 1982 hit movie The Blue Lagoon, despite a wave of protest and controversy.
The sequel, The Flu Lagoon, was filmed at a pig sty farm in Texas. The said sty is close to the banks of a large man-made lagoon and the employees of the sty freely pump their left over waste into the lagoon. All the pigs at the sty have been infected with Swine Flu, hence the title.
The story is about an older couple who get marooned on a deserted rubbish tip on the banks of a polluted lagoon next to a pig sty. It is a touching story of two middle aged people discovering their sexuality for the first time and learning to fall in love amidst a rather stinky, disgusting and unattractive background. Will one of the two lovers contract Swine Flu, Salmonella or Ebola? Audience members will be kept on the edge of their seats throughout the first ¾ of the film to get the answer to that question.
Critics have given the film rave reviews and called Shields performance "Academy Award Winning". Animal activists, however, call the film and its insinuation that pigs are filthy and carry diseases, an insult to all pigs and pig farmers. They plan to protest on the day of the film's opening.
British actor Daniel Radcliff, 21, plays Shields' love interest in the film and is said to have done a very impressive imitation of the Texan accent and a fine job of acting and looking 45.
The Flu Lagoon will be released in 3D in Cinemas world-wide on 1st July. 3D glasses as well as medical masks will be given out at the entrance to all cinemas showing the film.
