Alex Lawther deserves more than being typecast as a posh English schoolboy - but that's what's happening again, in this moderate new spin on the Cyrano de Bergerac story.
This charmingly oddball rom-com exists somewhere between 'If....' and 'Rushmore' in the canon of schoolboy eccentricity.
Nobody quite grows up in the course of "Old Boys," at least they take charge of their stories: Whether it's prosaic or poetic, this agreeably gawky film ultimately concludes, your life is best put in your own words.
Toby MacDonald demonstrates an appealingly original world view in his first feature and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
Lawther makes a charming and likeable lead, while Hauer-King proves a real find, with the most moving scenes centred on the development of their friendship.
The film is at least packed with solidly written and played moments that encourage the audience to laugh at how serious everything seems when we're teens.
An endearing slice of adolescent puppy love
For all the preposterous pomposity of the school, which is mined very effectively for laughs, there is also a credibility to the depiction which suggests that the filmmakers are not strangers to the world they satirise.
