Handsome Devil Trailer Released Ahead of ADIFF Irish Premiere

The trailer for John Butler’s Handsome Devil has been released ahead of its Irish premiere at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival on 26 Feb. The coming-of-age film will also receive its European premiere at the Glasgow International Film Festival on 15 February, where it will be screened as the Opening Night Gala.

Produced by Rebecca O'Flanagan and Rob Walpole for Treasure Entertainment, the film, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last September was previously announced as ADIFF’s Closing Night Gala.

Starring Irish actors Andrew Scott, Moe Dunford, Amy Huberman and Ardal O’Hanlon alongside Fionn O’Shea and Nicholas Galitzine, the film follows the story of the unlikely friendship of boarding school roommates Ned (O’Shea) and Conor (Galitzine). Despite taking an instant dislike to each other, they are encouraged by their English teacher Dan Sherry (Scott) to find their own voices and defy the status quo of their rugby-obsessed school. As the two bond over music, an unlikely and inspiring friendship begins to blossom.

The film has already been hailed as “potentially the best Irish movie of 2017.”
