Product Details

THE MOST INDELIBLE ADAPTATION OF THE CLASSIC NOVEL, IN A NEW SPECIAL EDITION! In the hands of the renowned experimental theatre director PETER BROOK, William Golding’s legendary novel on the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its centre. Taking an innovative documentary-like approach, Brook shot Lord of the Flies with an off-the-cuff naturalism, seeming to record a spontaneous eruption of its characters’ ids. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material.
