Lord of the Flies PG rating

Peter Brook’s Palme d’Or-nominated adaption of the classic novel by William Golding.

Drama 1963 91 mins

Director: Peter Brook



The thin veneer of civilization is soon exposed when a plane carrying a group of schoolboys crash-lands on a deserted island, forcing them to fend for themselves. Director Peter Brook focused on bringing a gritty authenticity and realism to the film by shooting on an island, complete with basic accommodation for his young, non-professional cast, and encouraging improvisation over scripted scenes. A dark adventure story with a chilling truth at its heart.
