Lord of the Flies

William Golding's 1963 allegory on man's innate inhumanity is too facile by half, which makes it ideal for high school English classes but rather too gaseous and predictable for the movies. A group of British schoolboys is stranded on a tropical island after a plane crash; before long, the ties and jackets have been discarded and the kids are organizing themselves into primitive, marauding bands. Peter Brook directed in a ragtag style, groping toward the ensemble hysteria that would become the hallmark of his stage work. With James Aubrey, Tom Chapin, and Hugh Edwards.
