In the midst of a war, a plane carrying a group of British schoolboy evacuees is shot down. Stranded on a remote island without adults, the boys establish their own tribal "society," eventually splitting into two opposing groups and sliding into hostility and savagery. Director Peter Brook's stunning adaptation of William Golding's chilling novel features an all-amateur cast, including James Aubrey, Tom Chapin, Hugh Edwards, and Tom Gaman. 90 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
