In this school-set re-working of Cyrano de Bergerac, an awkward but imaginative pupil helps the handsome but spectacularly dim school-hero pursue the fiery daughter of a visiting French teacher.


Critic Reviews for Old Boys

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.

Feb 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.
