Studious Ned feels like the only one at his Irish boys boarding school who doesn’t share the school obsession with rugby.
But at the start of a new term Ned’s world is rocked by his bold new English teacher (Andrew Scott), who encourages him to form an unlikely friendship with Conor, Ned’s tough but protective new roommate – who happens to be a rugby star.
Sweet, sympathetic and with a great soundtrack, Handsome Devil will delight those who remember the joy and pain of growing up.
– Observer UK “It’s completely disarming – a warm, reassuring hug of a film that should be shown to every confused kid trying to piece together their identity.”
Screen International “A Jaunty and Joyous Tale.”
Hollywood Reporter “Pretty Darn Impossible to Resist.”
Stuff Review 3 1/2 stars. “Charming and charismatic Irish coming-of-age story that’s part Dead Poets Society, part Sing Street.”
