The last thing Ned wants is to be sent to a rugby-obsessed boarding school to be humiliated for his aversion to the sport and his distinct lack of talent on the field. But, unfortunately for him, he has no choice in the matter. Constantly being pushed around by his classmates, he befriends and unlikely newcomer with whom he is forced to share a room. Initially intimidated by Conor’s reputation for getting in to fights and his sporting talent, Ned shortly learns in that there is a lot more to Conor than meets the eye. Like Ned, he moreover has a passion for music, yet when Conor’s teammates discover their friendship he seems determined to sever ties. There seems to be only one human being sticking up for Ned, and that’s his teacher Dan Sherry who is trying to foster all the boys in his class to be themselves. But that’s not always so easy.This Irish comedy drama has-been directed and written by the award-winning John Butler (‘The Bachelor Weekend’, ‘Your Bad Self’) and won Best Irish Feature at the Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards earlier this year. ‘Handsome Devil’ is expected to be let go in UK theatres on April 28th 2017.
