Movie Info

Ned, the bullied outsider, and Conor, 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 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 harbors some deep suspicions about Sherry.

Audience Reviews for Handsome Devil

  • Sep 12, 2017
    "Handsome Devil" is a sweet and charming bildungsroman for the LGBT set, with more than competent production. You may smile, if you allow yourself to do so.

    Whilst you can easily write this off an Irish version of Dead's Poet Society, it is so much more than that. With character depth and a topic that provides a few twists, this is one of the better coming of age dramas in a while.

    Handsome Devil is a mixed bag in all aspects. The acting ranges from stellar to mediocre, the gags are hit & miss, and the moments are either stellar or impactless.
