A coming-of-age story of Ned, the bullied outsider, and Conor, a new boy and star athlete, who 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 Ned’s 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 (Andrew Scott) begins to drill into them the value of finding one’s own voice, resulted in how they form an unlikely friendship put to test by the authorities.

“A charming and charismatic coming-of-age story that's part Dead Poets Society, part Sing Street.” — Stuff.co.nz
