Lord Of The FliesAn aircraft carrying 24 young military school cadets returning home crash lands into the sea near a remote, uninhabited, jungle island in the Pacific Ocean. Among the survivors is the pilot, Captain Benson, the only other survivor, who is seriously injured and delirious. During the night, Simon finds a river and notifies the other boys, to which they all drink out of it and explore the island afterwards. Meanwhile, on the beach, an overweight cadet, whose real name is never revealed, nicknamed “Piggy”, finds a conch seashell and takes it to the grouped cadets, who adopt it to signal the right to speak and be heard by the group.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Lord Of The Flies"
Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The symbolism is right up front and unmissable, and the story part -- the events that in theory should cause our throats to tighten and our pulses to quicken -- is pretty lame.
PopMattersMay 21, 2015
1963's Lord of the Flies was a transcendent experience in accurate filmmaking, 1990's Lord of the Flies is only a movie.

O brilhante texto de Golding sobrevive até mesmo aos tropeços da direção insegura de Hook.
Apollo GuideFebruary 14, 2004
If the best thing you can say about this adaptation is that the island looks pretty, perhaps we might be better off borrowing a travelogue video from the local library.

A rousing remake of the classic tale by William Golding about the dark side of human nature
Arizona Daily StarAugust 02, 2002
A fine adaptation of the novel. The kids' performances speak measures about human nature.
