The Horrific Beauty of Nicholas Verso's BOYS IN THE TREES (2016)

• 127 min

Come along with me and my special guest, Pastor Ben Fitzgerald-Fye, as we venture into the eerie, mystical and very queer world of the 2016 Australian film, Boys in the Trees. This unique coming-of-age tale set on Halloween Night is far from your typical horror movie, blending genres to create a uniquely captivating, enchanting, and chilling atmosphere. As we journey into the deep dark woods with the characters of Boys in the Trees, we'll not only encounter ghosts, monsters and werewolves. We'll uncover themes of the treacherous complexity of male psychology, the danger of expressing male affection & the normalization of homophobic violence. But we'll also discover unconditional love, second chances and the power of friendship. This episode is not only a celebration of a remarkable film, but also a reminder of the power of redemption, transformation, and the bonds that tie us all together. BOYS IN THE TREES was written & directed by NICHOLAS VERSO and stars TOBY WALLACE, GULLIVER MCGRATH, MITZI RUHLMANN and JUSTIN HOLBOROW. BOYS IN THE TREES is available to buy or rent from all the usual outlets, and at publication time, it's also streaming for free here on YouTube.
