A music-mad 16-year-old outcast at a rugby-mad boarding school forms an unlikely friendship with his new roommate, in this delightful coming-of-age tale from Irish novelist and filmmaker, John Butler.

Teenage ginger Ned Roche is bracing himself for another term of ridicule at boarding school. His penchant for Bowie and playing guitar, over spending time on the rugby field, has made him a target for bullies. Ned's solitary nature and ambiguous sexuality don’t help matters, either.
Enter hunky transfer student Conor, assigned as Ned’s new roommate—a mismatch made in movie heaven.

Pitting geek against jock, guitar against football, talent show against rugby season, Butler’s second feature, Handsome Devil, is an utterly charming, heartfelt film about finding your voice and yourself.
