Handsome Devil is an upcoming Irish movie that hits our screens on April 21st. It debuted at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival and it’s since played at the Glasgow and Dublin Film Festivals where it has been very well received. Handsome Devil is written and directed by John Butler, who was also responsible for one of my favourite Irish films of recent years, The Stag (also known as as The Bachelor Weekend), and it features a couple of familiar faces from that film including Amy Huberman and Andrew Scott.
Set in a rugby-obsessed boarding school, the film tells the story of the unlikely friendship between music nerd Ned (Fionn O’Shea) and handsome jock Conor (Nicholas Galitzine). It looks like a heartwarming coming of age story and I’m looking forward to seeing it next month.
