John Butler's Handsome Devil Given Release Date
Some good news for those of you who saw John Butler’s hilarious debut feature film The Stag a few years ago. The writer/director is returning with Handsome Devil, which will reach UK cinemas on 28th April, one week after its release in Ireland.
It is a charming story of an unlikely friendship between two boarding school roommates – music-mad Ned (Fionn O’Shea) and macho rugby player Conor (Nicholas Galitzine). In this funny and observant coming-of-age tale, the boys take an instant dislike to each other but are encouraged by their English teacher (Andrew Scott) to find their own voices and defy the status quo.
The first screening in England was held at the BFI Flare Film Festival last week and the film has been picking up solid reviews since first appearing at TIFF last year.
