Edinburgh International Film Festival is delighted to announce that the riotous social satire Boyz in the Wood will open the 73rd edition of Edinburgh International Film Festival. The European Premiere will take place at Festival Theatre on Wednesday 19th June. Tickets will go on sale at 10:00am on Wednesday 1st May. Tickets can be purchased at the link above.
Set deep in the Scottish Highlands, Boyz in the Wood is an anarchic cocktail of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers, and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings. As four city boys try to escape a mysterious huntsman, played brilliantly by a menacing Eddie Izzard, the Highlands' police force trails behind, failing spectacularly and hilariously to provide assistance. Rising stars Rian Gordon, Samuel Bottomley, Viraj Juneja and Lewis Gribben lead a star-studded cast including Scottish greats Kate Dickie, EIFF Honorary Patron James Cosmo and Kevin Guthrie.
