At an English all-boys boarding school, the life of nerdy Amberson is turned upside down when the daughter of the new French teacher arrives. As he ends up playing matchmaker to the school's popular sporting hero in dire need of romantic assistance, he realises he's falling for the girl himself. A fresh and vibrant comedy, OLD BOYS is a modern twist on the timeless story of Cyrano de Bergerac.
- " This heightened world gives the whole movie a bizarre tone that is initially jarring, but ultimately creates much of the film's enjoyable quirk and comedic spark. " – Tom Beasley (VultureHound)
- " A likable debut from Toby MacDonald, Old Boys adds a new lick to old tropes and delivers a mostly quirky appealing take on young love and the need to speak in your own voice. " – Ian Freer (Empire Magazine)
- " It takes two elements – the story of Cyrano de Bergerac and a British same-sex boarding school – that have already been mined extensively by film-makers over the years. And it somehow manages to create something fresh and distinctive. " – Wendy Ide (Observer, UK)
