Description:

This paper relates that William Golding's "Lord of the Flies" is about a group of English schoolboys stranded on a deserted island, where they go wild and commit heinous, uncivilized acts. The author points out that landscape in the movie version reflects these themes, both in a general sense and with regard to specific aspects of the scenery. The paper states that, within the context of the movie, the dynamic is simplified and a group of boys submits to their baser instincts very quickly.

From the Paper:

"The film Lord of the Flies has one central assumption: that people have to be in a civilized location in order to behave in a civilized manner. The boys in the story are intended as a microcosm of society as a whole, and by extension, what happens to them is a comment on what happens in society at large. After all, there are many examples of brutality among human societies on all continents. However, within the context of the movie, the dynamic is simplified, and a group of boys submits to their baser instincts very quickly."
