Synopsis

A group of young boys are stranded alone on an island. Left to fend for themselves, they must take on the responsibilities of adults, even if they are not ready to do so. Inevitably, two factions form: one group (lead by Ralph) want to build shelters and collect food, whereas Jack's group would rather have fun and HUNT; illustrating the difference between civilization and savagery.

Dividing Bar

One of the classic boy films made with a bunch of ordinary British schoolboys who, apparently, had a great time making it. Tom Chapin as Jack is and looks good as the leader of the hunters. A proper little fascist against whom Ralph (James Aubrey)is a well meaning wimp.

It is a matter of debate whether schoolboys, left to their own devices, would deteriorate to the level shown in the film. Golding has been criticised for painting too gloomy a picture of what would happen to children in those circumstances.
