In The Beach (2000), a lost Leonardo DiCaprio classic, couple of young adults swim to a paradise island for adventure.
I tried to figure out what year the plot is set. The movie was released in 2000 and throughout the movie you can hear various electronic dance music songs from the mid to late 90s.
Was the plot set in 90s? Has anyone read the book, does it mention the year?
Anyway, I assume it's set in the 90s, because at the beginning you can see The Simpsons scene running in the back and The Simpsons came out in late 80s.
So maybe late 80s/90s?
