Eurocreme returns with another in its upscale Boy series. This time it’s Borstal Boy, centering on Andy (Will Jamieson), a tattooed youth who is sent to reform school for being a troublemaker. Once inside, he deals with a bully named Gary (Ben Taylor), makes a new friend (Ricky Jackson as the sweet James) and even finds love. Along the way, a group of smooth, uncut twinks do their best to perform manual labor while being roughed up by the help. Jamieson gets the sex going with a passable shower jack. Then the guards (Darren Robbins and Steve Masters) order the inmates around, demanding that they suck and fuck. Poor things! Robbins even has a threeway in which he and another lad perform a respectable double penetration. Andy gets caught in a power play with Gary but brains him with some billiard balls, which allows our hero to take over as head thug. The cute cast is uniformly thin and pale (hey, they’re British!) with the exception of hairy guard Masters. Taylor is nicely hung, as is one scrawny model named Steven Prior, who is gifted beyond his years. Overall, the sex scenes are focused and tight, and the production, shot in and around London, has class and style (the Widescreen format adds a nice touch). Viewers will get caught up in the story line and even share Andy’s happiness when he see his new love waiting for him upon his release. Let’s hear it for the Borstal Boy! (Eurocreme)
