Synopsis

a coming of age comedy - Rushmore by way Cyrano de Bergerac at a fictional boys' boarding school.
A vibrant and imaginative boarding school set re-working of the classic 'Cyrano de Bergerac' story. An awkward but imaginative pupil, an eternal outsider with a great heart and endlessly inventive, helps the handsome but spectacularly dim school hero pursue the fiery visiting daughter of a French teacher.
A coming of age comedy blending 'Rushmore' by way of 'Cyrano de Bergerac'.
The directorial feature debut from Toby Macdonald, who has previously delivered stand-out short films, including the BAFTA-nominated 'Je t’aime John Wayne' and 'Heavy Metal Drummer'.
