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.
