Part of the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival 2017
Presented by Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand
Directed by John Butler. 2017. Ireland. 95 min.
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 Ned’s life at 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 one’s own voice. This lesson isn’t appreciated by everyone though, not least the rugby coach, who has his own agenda, and who harbors deep suspicions about Mr. Sherry.
