FILM4, 6.50PM ★★★★

A group of teenage boys live in a meadow at the heart of a gi­ant labyrinth: no one knows why they’re there, or what lies be­yond the maze’s shift­ing walls, un­til the ar­rival of new 16-year-old Thomas (Dylan O’brien) starts a sud­den push for free­dom. This lean and tense adap­ta­tion of James Dash­ner’s young adult sci-fi se­ries makes good on its wildly in­trigu­ing premise, with a hint of Lord of the Flies.
