A Clockwork Orange + Lord of the Flies + Island of Love = The Wild Boys. — The all-female cast gave an amazing performance as five teenage boys who commit a crime and are punished by their wealthy families by making them serve a Dutch captain on his ship. He’s hell-bent on taming their ferocious appetites, but after arriving on a lush island full of dangers and pleasures the boys start to transform in both mind and body. Shot in gorgeous 16mm and brimming with eroticism, genderfluidity, and humor, The Wild Boys will take you on a journey you won’t soon forget. Great set design, beautiful photography, and fantastic soundtrack!
