SYNOPSIS

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 bourgeois boys (all played by female actors) are sent off on a raucous sea voyage to be reformed by a repressive boat captain. Arriving on Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean, they encounter intoxicating vegetation with transformative powers. Licentiousness and violence overtake their world as their toxic masculinity deliriously implodes in this singular cinematic odyssey.
