Interview: Nicholas Galitzine in "Handsome Devil"

An abridged version of this interview was previously published atTowleroad

Nicholas Galitzine is a star on the rugby field in "Handsome Devil"

by Nathaniel R

The third time is the charm.Just three years and three films into his acting career,Nicholas Galitzinehas what looks like a breakout role.John Butler's Irish dramedyHandsome Devilcenters around the unlikely friendship of a new student Ned (Fionn O'Shea) and the star athlete Conor (Galitzine) at a rugby-mad boarding school.Their friendship is encouraged by their teacher Mr Sherry (played by the fine Irish actor Andrew Scott ofPrideandSherlockfame) but the rugby team isn't wild about it.Conor is a wonderful showcase for Galitzine's talent,and in more ways than one.The role also allows the actor to use what he calls his "separate passion,"music.

Screen International named Galitzine one of their "Stars of Tomorrow"in 2015 as part of their annual feature promoting the UK's most promising actors.Their prediction is looking sound.Galitzine,for his part,isn't taking it for granted.He appears both eager to test his range and grateful for his opportunities.He calls acting "the best job in the world"and admits that "I've been very lucky so far".

Our interview follows after the jump...

TIFF: Strange Weather and Handsome Devil

Nathaniel R reporting from the Toronto International Film Festival

Despite the buzz from festivals usually circling around pre-sold films and major Oscar hopefuls,there are always minor gems to be found amongst the clutter which are still seeking distribution.Here are two I hope get picked up,a very accessible Irish boarding school drama (without the benefit of any big name to sell it) and an American indie starring Oscar winner Holly Hunter.

Strange Weather
(Dir.Katherine Dieckmann,US)
Take a look at that still above.Now look way to your out of focus far right.See the girl in pink tank and jean shorts?That's Carrie Coon (Gone Girl,The Leftovers),one of the best actresses working who is still not a household name or an Emmy or Oscar nominee!But,yes,movie still providers to festival guides,Holly Hunter is the draw here.She plays Darcy Baylor,a bohemian mother of meager means (a Holly specialty - see alsoThirteen) who lost her only child to suicide years before the film begins.She has never quite been the same and her fierce best friend (Carrie Coon),her best friend's girlfriend (Andrene Ward-Hammond who is also inLovingthis year) and her ex-boyfriend (a soulful Kim Coates fromSons of Anarchy) are concerned about her all over again when a couple of chance encounters reveal something she didn't know about the day he died.Though the plot can be (okayis) convoluted,the writing is otherwise strong with well defined characters,great conversations (it's partially a road trip movie),and a ineffable central arc that Holly Hunter has no trouble selling because she is Holly Hunter and goddamnit we don't appreciate her enough.Though there are a couple of bumpy patches in this road with wonky cuts,shots,and transitions -- perhaps budget trouble?-- and that aforementioned convoluted story might be difficult if you're not into the actresses.But if you aren't,your loss!I could have watched these characters/actors for another hour.I'll take a spinoff series with Carrie and her lesbian lover please!B/B-

Handsome Devil
(Dir.John Butler,Ireland)
This Irish boarding school drama about a redhead student who cares nothing for sports at a rugby-mad school is sweet goodhearted fun.It risks being a little 'This is a Teen Movie!' annoying and unrealistic in its construction (complete with occasionally snarky narration) but the friendship at its center between music-loving Ned (Fionn O'Shea) and strong and silent rugby star Conor (Nicholas Galitzine) is really well done and fills up the heart of this accessible mainstream charmer about "otherness."The undervalued / always terrific Andrew Scott (Pride) plays the gay teacher who encourages Ned & Conor in their odd couple friendship and their off-sport pursuits. You know we've come a long way when a movie with a rather large LGBT element is not even listed with a key word of LGBT in the festival guide! (Director John Butler made one previous feature calledThe Bachelor Weekendwhich we reviewed a couple of years agowhich also starred Andrew Scott.He's made a leap forward with this second feature.)B
