Spud

The best-selling book comes to the big screen


Spud
The popular SA novel hits the big screen. Set in the early 1990s, John ''Spud'' Milton has embarked on his first year at an elite, boys-only private school. Cursed with parents from well beyond the lunatic fringe, a senile granny, and a dormitory full of strange characters, Spud has to forge a new life for himself in this foreign and sometimes hostile environment. He takes his first tentative steps along the path toward manhood, armed with only his wits and his diary. We go from illegal night swimming to the cricket field, to ghost busting to teacher baiting. We peek inside his mind as he struggles to come to terms with love, friendship and complete insanity.
