JOHN BUTLER | IRELAND | 2016 | 95 min.

An unlikely yet authentic bond develops between two teenage boys at an Irish boarding school, in this charming, rugby-centric dramedy from talented Irish writer-director John Butler.

Ned, the bullied outsider, and Conor, a new boy and star athlete, are forced to room together at their cloistered boarding school. Conor is drafted into the senior rugby team, whose actions dominate school life and whose privilege and entitlement have made Nedís life to date at the school a misery. The boys take an instant and visceral dislike to each other, and Ned and Conor seem destined to remain enemies until an English teacher Mr. Sherry begins to drill into them the value of finding oneís own voice. This lesson isnít appreciated by everyone, though, not least the rugby coach, Pascal, who has his own agenda, and who harbours some deep suspicions about Sherry.
