Handsome DevilBy Breaking Glass Pictures
Ned, the bullied outsider, and Conor, the new boy and star athlete, are to room together at their boarding school. The boys take an instant dislike to each other, and seem destined to remain enemies until an English teacher, Mr. Sherry, begins to drill into them the value of finding one's own voice. However, this lesson isn't appreciated by everyone, particularly rugby coach Pascal, who has his own agenda - and who harbors some deep suspicions about the boys' teacher.
Reasons to Buy
- A funny and observant coming-of-age tale from Irish novelist and filmmaker John Butler. It's nice to see a new gay movie come out of Ireland (it's still kind of rare).
- Handsome Devil offers a touching reminder of the importance of loyalty, bravery, standing up for yourself and making sure that your voice, no matter how different, is heard.
- Lead actors Fionn O'Shea and Nicholas Galitzine give exceptional performances as two young men discovering who they really are and what they really want from life. You won't be able to walk away from this movie without feeling touched.
