Get Duked!

Four city boys on a wilderness trek try to escape a mysterious huntsman.


Why watch this film?

This British comedy was shown and awarded at the 2019 South by Southwest Festival under the name 'Boyz in the Wood', but now it has been given the title 'Get Duked!', a play on an English swear word and the plot of the movie. The story follows the adventures of four teenagers in the Scottish Highlands as they complete the so-called "Duke of Edinburgh Challenge". They have to make a journey through the wilderness and, as if that weren't hard enough, they also have to escape from a pair of hunters who want to kill them. 'Get Duked!' is full of sharp humor and good critiques of youth culture, regarding drug consumption and also the difference between social classes. The production can be compared to the kind of comedy of Taika Waititi, who manages to talk about serious topics and still get a laugh out of it. An example of this is the award-winning 'Jojo Rabbit' and 'The Incredible Adventure of Rick Baker'. 'Get Duked!' has a great soundtrack - for those who are fans of hip-hop - and an original plot, which mixes moments of tension with lots of humor. The cast of the movie is not very well known, the most popular faces are Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickie, Jonathan Aris and James Cosmo, who deliver great performances. The four protagonists don't stay behind, special mention to Lewis Gribben - it's hard not to laugh at his lines.
