OLD BOYS Best Film of 24th Sarajevo Film Festival TeenArena Programme
The Youth Jury of the 24th Sarajevo Film Festival awarded “Old Boys” by director Toby MacDonald from Great Britain for Best Film of this year’s TeenArena Programme.
The screenplay is written by Luke Ponte, Freddy Syborn. ‘Survival of the fittest’ is the philosophy at the all-boys boarding school Caldermount. If you are not a champion on the sports field, you’re a nobody. No one knows this better than bookworm Amberson, who has been at the bottom of the school’s social ladder since he can remember. When the French teacher’s fiery daughter Agnès arrives, Amberson’s life is turned upside-down. He suddenly finds himself playing matchmaker for Winchester, the school’s handsome but spectacularly dim hero. Winchester definitely has the looks to win over Agnès, but it’s Amberson who has the wits.
