Storyline

At an English all-boys boarding school, the life of nerdy Amberson is turned upside down when the daughter of the new French teacher arrives. As he ends up playing matchmaker to the school's popular sporting hero in dire need of romantic assistance, he realises he's falling for the girl himself. A fresh and vibrant comedy, OLD BOYS is a modern twist on the timeless story of Cyrano de Bergerac.

Cyrano de Bergerac meets The Go-Between.
12 March 2019 | by BertieVIISee all my reviews

Slightly preposterous plot but very nicely acted and produced. Gorgeous setting of Lancing College and scenes in Lewes help the visuals.The story could be told in half the time but that wouldn't make much of a film! The film is set in the 1980s and, unfortunately, propogates a stereotyped version of life at an English Public School which is far from the reality. (It wasn't that bad when I went to one in the 60s!). Worth viewing.
