The Devil's Playground Film Poster


Impressionistic and semi-autobiographical first feature film from director Fred Schepisi which tells the story of thirteen-year old Tom Allen at a strict Catholic school. The institutional restrictions cause stress and unhappiness and despite the fire and brimstone warnings of the priest the boys try hard to escape the confined lives they lead.
