Lord of the Flies

Those nice people at the Guardian gave a way a free DVD of Peter Brook's 1963 film of Lord of the Flies yesterday.

I have watched some of it and feel more secure in my theory that Golding's novel was not so much a repository of eternal truths about human nature so much as a reflection of the times in which it was written.

One bit of good news: it seems James Aubrey (Ralph in the film) has managed to find work since playing David Chidgey last year.
