A sweet British coming of age comedy that hilariously updates Cyrano de Bergerac. Amberson (Alex Lawther) is the bottom of the pecking order at boys’ boarding school Caldermount. Picked last for everything and awkward beyond belief, he is incapable of winning the attention of Agnes, the daughter of a visiting French teacher.
He’s drafted by the dim-witted school hero to help woo Agnes on his behalf, but the course of love does not run smooth.
Lead actor Alex Lawther and director Toby MacDonald join us for a post-screening Q&A.
This event took place on Tuesday 19 February 2019 Curzon Soho.
