“Survival of the fittest” is the name of the game at the all-boys boarding school Caldermount. If you’re not a champion on the sports field, you’re nobody at all. No one knows this better than bookworm Amberson, who has been at the bottom of the school’s social ladder for as long as he can remember.
When the French teacher’s fiery daughter Agnes arrives, Amberson’s life is turned upside-down. Suddenly, he finds himself playing matchmaker for Winchester, the school’s handsome — yet spectacularly dim — hero. Winchester definitely has the looks to win over Agnes, but it’s Amberson who has the wits. Will Amberson have the courage to reveal himself to her and stand up for who he really is?
A fresh and vibrant comedy, Old Boys is a modern twist on the timeless story of Cyrano de Bergerac.
