Distinctly erotic, tropical and surreal, The Wild Boys is a gender- and genre-bending treat.

After committing a horrible crime against their teacher, a group of early 20th century bourgeois boys (played by female actors) are sent off to be reformed by a repressive boat captain. Cast away on Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean following their rebellion, they encounter intoxicating vegetation with transformative powers. Licentiousness and violence overtake their claustrophobic world, and their toxic masculinity deliriously implodes.  The fantastical set design in this luscious film brings spurting phallic flowers to life, making it even more surprising that it was shot on location.
