A major debut by a major new director. Having made his name as a regular collaborator with Pablo Trapero, co-writing Carancho and White Elephant, Alejandrop Fadel eschews the political thriller for something altogether more mythical. Five teenagers escape from a juvenile detention centre on the border between Córdoba and San Luis, killing a guard and escaping into the wilderness. The Wild Ones is a tale of youthful misadventure – complete with murder, drug use and sex – before transforming into a mystical search for freedom, grace and a union with the elements akin to that found in nature.
