80s or 90s movie about teens on desert island

When I was a kid I had a movie that we had recorded from the TV. My mum had written the name "Exile" on it but I can't be sure this was the name of the movie and I can't find any trace of it on IMDB.

The story is about a group of teenagers on a trip when their plane crashes and they are stranded on a desert island. There is some sort of back-story about the pilot being a criminal of some sort and when he ends up stranded with them they imprison him in a hand-made cell/cage. I seem to remember it being very much a sort of 'Lord of the Flies' type of story (about them setting up their own society and rules, etc) but it definitely wasn't an exclusively male group. I don't remember any of the cast unfortunately.

I would be very grateful if someone could tell me what this movie is. It was my sister's favourite film as a child and I would love to get it for her as a gift.
