Vague description, but maybe one of you will know what the hell I’m after. It was a movie, or maybe a made-for-TV miniseries, and I really want to say that Elijah Wood was in it, playing the character of someone stranded alone on an island.
The other main character - who wore a lot of eyeliner but definitely was not Jonny Depp - looks like Eddie Izzard in my recollection.
The only key detail I remember is that the stranded young man had tasted cheese once in his life before, and equated it in a very literal sense with heaven.
Cheese. Heaven. Pirates. Have I lost my marbles or was this something I actually watched.
