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.

When Simon leaves the shelters on the beach, he is shirtless. Yet when he watches Jack and the hunters kill the pig, he is wearing a clean, white shirt. Later when we see Simon again, he is shirtless once again. See more »
We all know the film and book from grade school - they do still teach it don't they? Anyway, I am incredibly impressed with the Criterion DVD extras. Home movies, outtakes, deleted scenes, scrapbook, etc. all with commentary from a cameraman as well as the director, there are even book excerpts read by William Golding, the author. The entire collection is a work of art unto itself.
