Title: The Wild Boys
Post by: wilder on February 05, 2018, 05:00:05 AM
instantly my most anticipated of the year


At the beginning of the 20th century on the island of La Réunion, five adolescents of good family, enamored with the occult, commit a savage crime. A Dutch Captain takes them in charge for a repressive cruise on a haunted, dilapidated sailboat. Exhausted by the methods of the Captain, the five boys prepare to mutiny. Their port of call is a supernatural island with luxuriant vegetation and bewitching powers.

Directed by Bertrand Mandico
Release date - February 24, 2018 @ Film Society Lincoln Center (https://www.filmlinc.org/films/wild-boys/), coming to blu-ray from German label Bildstoerung
