King of Devil's Island

Norwegian prison drama, set in the early 20th Century, following the true story of an inmate revolt against abusive guards at Bastøy Boys Home, an island correctional facility for young men.

"Begins with the arrival of seventeen-year-old Erling, a rumored murderer. He immediately clashes with the island facility's governor (Stellan Skarsgård, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), who believes manual labor, rigid discipline, and harsh punishment are the only methods that can turn the boys into honorable members of society. Refusing to accept the constant abuse, Erling rouses the rest of the boys and encourages them to fight. When tragedy finally falls at the hand of the sadistic dorm master, Erling leads his comrades in a courageous and vicious rebellion that will bring them head to head with no less than the Norwegian Army."
