What is that 80's movie that is set in a private school, and a boy is walking through the woods...
and sees a girl laying in a pond?
Fire with Fire (1986) Synopsis: This is a modern-day retelling of Romeo and Juliet. Joe Fisk (Craig Sheffer), a young convict at a detention camp, falls in love with Lisa (Virginia Madsen), a student at a nearby Catholic school. The two lovers first meet in the woods. Joe is running through the forest when he spots Lisa lying in a pond, beautifully dressed, surrounded by flowers. Although the two do not speak to each other, it is apparent that it is love at first sight. Later, they meet for a second time, once again very briefly, when Joe and his prison friends are on an excursion at the local cinema. Their eyes meet during the screening of the film. Lisa convinces the sisters at the school that it would be a nice gesture to invite the boys from the neighboring detention camp to a dance. The meeting between the two lovers at the dance is wonderfully staged and certainly is a highlight of the film. Their love for each other is cemented at the dance and sparks off their emotional desire to be together at all costs.
TRIVIA: What Lisa is doing at the pond is recreating (through a photograph) the 1851 painting by John Everett Millais titled "Ophelia".
