The Ballad of Jack and Rose (2005)

They inhabit an ideal world, located, a title helpfully informs you, on an isolated island off the Eastern Coast of the United States, 1986. They coo and cuddle, he coughs ominously, and they seem momentarily content, absorbed in one another. And then comes trouble.
