‘The sweetness, poignancy and breezy humour make it pretty darn impossible to resist.’
Love books, love music, hate school.
Studious Ned feels like the only one at his all-boys Irish boarding school who doesn’t share the school obsession with rugby. But at the start of a new term Ned’s world is rocked by his bold new English teacher, who encourages him to form an unlikely friendship with Conor, Ned’s tough but protective new roommate – who happens to be a rugby star. Sweet, sympathetic and with a great indie soundtrack, Handsome Devil will delight those who remember the joy and pain of growing up.
