The Irish in Film
An Annotated Database

 Title  Handsome Devil
Irish boarding schools, called colleges, are much like their English and American counterparts. Rich boys in uniforms enjoy elite education by day and endure austere dormitories by night. And, of course, sport is king. No class is more important than practice--even if it is cheerleading practice for non-athletes. What may be different though is tolerance of homosexuality. Ireland's strict, Catholic past still casts a jaundiced eye on boy-boy coupling. Here we see the first steps of acknowledgement of practices that, until very recently, were illegal in Ireland and are still mostly unaccepted.
