From legendary filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Basic Instinct) and screenwriter Gerald Soeteman (Soldier of Orange) comes an explosive, fast-paced and thrilling coming-of-age drama. Raw, intense and unabashedly sexual, Spetters is a wild ride that will knock the unsuspecting for a loop. Stuck in a dead-end town on the outskirts of Rotterdam, three young friends Rien, Eef and Hans have one thing in common, their passion for motorcycle racing, which each sees as his ticket to a better life. But a deeper passion will soon rule each of their lives, when a sexy, ambitious blonde (Renée Soutendijk, The Fourth Man) comes between them and provokes a series of unforeseen events. The film also co-stars the late great Rutger Hauer ( Blade Runner) and Jeroen Krabbé (The Fugitive).
