Lost and Found is a family adventure film. Andy Walton is a teenage delinquent who has been sent along with his younger brother to spend the summer on a remote island with Uncle Trent (Jason Patric.)
They know little of this uncle who seems to be down on his luck and drinks too much. Uncle Trent tells them that Walton Island is named after the family who were once wealthy but Trent's dad disappeared one day and left hidden treasure behind.
The island is being brought up by John Broman (Cary Elwes) who plans to turn it into a high class tourist resort rather than a small scale fishing village it is now.
The teenage brothers befriend Broman's daughter and embark on a treasure hunt to restore the family's lost fortune. They discover clues but the island is spooky and their seem to be other sinister forces getting in their way.
The movie is a moody low key family adventure film It is nothing to get too excited about. Elwes is the sinister rich guy who has motives wanting to take over the island quickly. Trent is just too downbeat putting messages in little ship bottles but is this some kind of catharsis for past mistakes?
