Film - Get Duked


Coming to Prime Video on August 28th, head for the hills with the Red Band trailer for Get Duked...


Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip - based on a real-life programme known as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that's worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures.

From Edinburgh-born writer-director Ninian Doff, making his feature debut after a slew of award-winning music videos and short films, comes "an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday."

Get Duked! stars Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickey, Georgie Glen, James Cosmo and a breakout young cast featuring Samuel Bottomley, Viraj Juneja, Rian Gordon, and Lewis Gribben. 

Editor's Note: If you think this all looks and sounds a little familiar, you'd be right! The film did the festival circuit last year and was the opening film at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2019. Only then it was called Boyz In The Wood
