Written and directed by John Butler, Handsome Devil gives us the story of Ned (Fionn O’Shea) and Conor (Nicholas Galitzine) – forced to share a bedroom at boarding school although they seem to have nothing in common. Helped by their supportive English teacher Dan Sherry (Andrew Scott), an unlikely friendship begins to develop until Ned commits an act of betrayal that messes everything up.

There’s a touch of Dead Poets Society about this film and, in many ways, this is a classic coming-of-age story with a fairy-tale ending. But it’s better than you might expect – there’s plenty of charm in the characters and the storytelling, with some convincing performances that keep you engaged right to the end.
