"Pleasant without being a significant contribution to the genre."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

‘Handsome Devil’ has two young men in the lead roles who are quite credible and refreshing. However, if you are familiar with the genre, you will recognise a number of things. The inspirational English teacher is a throwback to Robin Williams in ‘Dead Poets Society’ and when he turns out to be gay it is reminiscent of Stephen Campbell Moore in ‘The History Boys’. The setup is familiar and reminded me of Eddie Redmayne and Tom Sturridge being thrown together in a shared school boarding house room in ‘Like Minds’. The cliched sports master and rugby coach left me cold, although I did enjoy the unique portrayal of the Headmaster. The timing leading up to the climax and denouement requires a suspension of disbelief.

Description

Ned and Conor are forced to share a bedroom at their boarding school. The loner and the star athlete at this rugby-mad school form an unlikely friendship until it's tested by the authorities.

  • “It's very winningly written and acted.” – Daily Mail (UK)
