Old Boys

Director: Toby MacDonald
Recent Releases

Toby MacDonald’s Cyrano-inspired, school-set comedy, starring Alex Lawther.

Inspired by the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story, Old Boys marks the feature debut for Toby MacDonald and producer Luke Morris - the team behind BAFTA-nominated short films, Je t’aime John Wayne and Heavy Metal Drummer - and is written by Luke Ponte and Freddy Syborn. 

Alex Lawther, critically acclaimed for his role as the young Alan Turing in the multi-award winning The Imitation Game, leads an impressive roster of talented young actors, including César and Lumière-nominated French actress, Pauline Étienne, rising star Jonah Hauer-King, Denis Ménochet and Joshua McGuire.

In this vibrant school-set re-working of Cyrano, an awkward but imaginative pupil (Alex Lawther) helps the handsome but spectacularly dim school-hero (Jonah Hauer-King) pursue the fiery daughter (Pauline Étienne) of a visiting French teacher (Denis Ménochet).
