Handsome Devil

Friday 3rd March / presented by Jane Hebiton

Irish writer and director John Butler left audiences with a great first impression after his début comedy feature film The Stag.

Butler’s back with his next offering, Handsome Devil, which follows teenager Ned Roche’s struggles as he settles in to an all-boys rugby boarding school.

Ned is described as “a scrawny, self-styled 16-year-old rebel with over-dyed red hair and a room decorated with David Bowie lyrics and Dita Von Teese pinups”. His solitary nature and ambiguous sexuality make him a target for gay slurs from his tribal classmates.

It’s playing as part of Perth’s International Arts Festival, and will be released in Ireland in April 2017.

Director John Butler joined Artbeat to talk about his latest work.
