The Scouting Book For Boys


Set in a Norfolk coastal caravan park, The Scouting Book for Boys is a British drama about careless and free Emily and David, both fourteen, who fill their summer days climbing on roof tops, swimming in the pool and playing tricks on each other. The teenagers’ unshakable friendship suddenly is put under threat and, as a result, the kids come up with a terrifying plan. Brace yourself for a stomach kicking, shocking turn of events, as The Scouting Book For Boys is not for the faint hearted!

Aptly described as the coming of age love story with a sting in the tail, The Scouting Book for Boys is the cinematic debut of Bafta award winning shorts director Tom Harper and Skins writer Jack Thorne, assisted by some of the team behind Slumdog Millionaire. This Is England’s Thomas Turgoose delivers an excellent performance depicting the awkwardness and contradictory instincts typical of an adolescent finding his feet through adulthood.



The film has screened at festivals around the world including The Times BFI 53rd London Film Festival earlier this year, where writer Jack Thorne won Best British Newcomer Award for his screenplay.

I personally recommend this beautifully shot British drama, a refreshing change from predictive story lines and Hollywood painted glitter
