Private Project

Lord of the Flies (2020)

A plane crashes on a desert island, and the only survivors, a group of school boys, must wait to be rescued. As their delicate sense of order fades, so are their childish dreams transformed into something more primitive, and their behaviour starts to take on a murderous, savage significance.

Writer Statement

I've been studying Lord of the Flies for my GCSE in English Literature. With the past two versions of the film either being outdated or inaccurate, I couldn't help but imagine bringing the characters to life myself. There's so much to look into with the allegorical core of the novel, but it would be an understatement (and a disservice) to say that it was just a political message over a 225-page-long span. The characters are key, the story is special and the themes are unique. Whilst each feature of the story is a pawn in Lord of the Flies message to modern day society, they are also full of life that can be best explored through film.
