Lord of the Flies
Shipwrecked on an island, 30 castaway schoolboys create their own savage civilization, despite the attempts of a few rational boys who try to prevent that happening.
Director: Peter Brook
Cast includes: James Aubrey, HUgh Edwards, Tom Gaman, Roger Elwin, Tom Chapin
91 Mins / 1963 / UK
Amidst a nuclear war, a plane carrying a group of schoolboys crash lands on a deserted island. With no adult survivors, the boys are forced to fend for themselves. At first they cooperate, but when the they split into two separate camps - one led by the pragmatic Ralph (James Aubrey) and the other by militaristic Jack (Tom Chapin) - their society falls into disarray, leading to a disturbing examination of human nature and a chilling conclusion.
For all that time has changed the way it fits into the world, Lord Of The Flies remains as important today as it was in 1963.
