“If there’s a better film to pair with My Own Private Idaho, I’ve certainly never seen it.” — Christian Ryan, LETTERBOXD


Part of Britain’s new wave of hyper-realistic “Kitchen Sink” films, The Leather Boys is a riveting mix of teen angst, biker thrills, and raging emotion. The movie follows young newlyweds Reggie (Colin Campbell) and Dot (Rita Tushingham, A Taste of Honey) as they embark on a new life together. But there’s trouble in paradise when Reggie develops feelings for Pete (Dudley Sutton), a member of a rival biker gang. Directed by Sidney J. Furie (The Entity) and written by Gillian Freeman from her novel, The Leather Boys explodes with expressionistic photography, gripping themes, and a bold exploration of identity. Long unavailable on home video, AGFA + Shout! Factory are elated to present a sparkling new restoration of this important chapter of early queer cinema.
