Synopsis

In the school-set re-working of the classic 'Cyrano' story, an awkward but imaginative pupil helps the handsome but spectacularly dim school-hero pursue the fiery daughter of a visiting French teacher.
A coming of age comedy blending 'Rushmore' by way of 'Cyrano de Bergerac'.

Directorial feature debut from Toby Macdonald, who previously delivered stand-out short films, including the BAFTA-nominated 'Je t’aime John Wayne' and 'Heavy Metal Drummer'.
