Old Boys (2018)

In this school-set re-working of Cyrano de Bergerac, an awkward but imaginative pupil helps the handsome but spectacularly dim hero pursue the fiery daughter of a visiting French teacher.

“Taking inspiration from the story of Cyrano de Bergerac but unfolding against the quintessentially British backdrop of an all-boys boarding school, the feature debut from director Toby MacDonald is a gently eccentric charmer of a film.” Screen Daily

“BAFTA-nominated short filmmaker Toby MacDonald makes an appealing feature debut with this schoolboy spin on Cyrano de Bergerac.’” Variety

A Toby MacDonald’s film with Alex Lawther (The End of the F***ing World, The Imitation Game, Black Mirror), Jonah Hauer-King (Little Women), Pauline Etienne (Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden, French TV hit Le Bureau des Légendes).
