Arriving next month is Old Boys, a British film that’s already been earning positive reviews.
Starring Alex Lawther and Jonah Hauer-King, Old Boys is a new film set in and around a boys’ boarding school, where – inevitably – people struggle to fit in.
It’s described as a love triangle comedy with quirks, and the movie marks the feature debut for director Toby MacDonald. Working from a script by Luke Ponte and Freddy Syborn, the movie is heading into UK cinemas on 22nd February. It also takes its inspiration firmly from the classic Cyrano De Bergerac story.
A trailer for the film has been released too, and you can see that here…
Here’s the synopsis, too…
‘Survival of the fittest’ is the philosophy at all-boys’ boarding school Caldermount. If you’re not a champion on the sports field, you’re a nobody. No one knows this better than bookworm Amberson (Alex Lawther), who’s been at the bottom of the school’s social ladder since he can remember. When the French teacher’s fiery daughter Agnes (Pauline Etienne) arrives, Amberson’s life is turned upside down. He suddenly finds himself playing matchmaker for Winchester (Jonah Hauer-King), the school’s handsome but spectacularly dim school-hero. Winchester definitely has the looks to win over Agnes but it’s Amberson who has the wits. Will Amberson have the courage to reveal himself to her and stand up for who he really is? A fresh and vibrant comedy, Old Boys is a modern twist on the timeless story of Cyrano de Bergerac.
