An Irish movie is coming to Netflix later this month and you should put it on your must watch list. 

Handsome Devil features a huge bunch of Irish stars, from Game of Thrones, Father Ted and The Siege of Jadotville to name but a few. 

It's directed by James Butler and made its debut in 2016 in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the Toronto Film Festival. 

Ned (Fionn O’Shea),  the  bullied  outsider,  and  Conor (Nicholas Galitzine),  a  new  boy  and  star  athlete,  are forced  to  room  together  at  their  cloistered  boarding  school.  Conor  is drafted into the senior rugby team, whose actions dominate school life and whose privilege and entitlement have made Ned’s s life to date at the school a  misery.  The  boys  take  an  instant  and  visceral  dislike  to  each  other,  and Ned  and  Conor  seem  destined  to  remain  enemies  until  an  English  teacher Mr. Sherry (Andrew Scott) begins to drill into them the value of finding one’s own voice. This lesson isn’t appreciated by everyone,  though, not least the rugby  coach,  Pascal  (Moe  Dunford),  who  has  his  own  agenda , and  who harbours some deep suspicions about Sherry.

Handsome Devil lands on Netflix on July 20th.
