Old Boys was directed by Toby Macdonald and produced by Luke Morris for Film4. I wrote the script based on Toby, Luke and Luke Ponte's original idea.
The film has an amazing cast: Alex Lawther, Jonah Hauer-King, Pauline Étienne and Denis Ménochet, with Joshua Maguire and Nicholas Rowe.
Old Boys premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2018. It won the Youth Jury prize at the Sarajevo Film Festival. It also won the Audience Award at the Dinard Film Festival.
"It's a love letter to the love letter. And I fell for it completely." The Observer ****
"This charmingly oddball rom-com exists somewhere between ‘If....‘ and ‘Rushmore’. A witty dissection of English upper-class zealotry." Time Out ****

I co-wrote the Bad Education Movie with Jack Whitehall.
The movie was directed by Elliot Hegarty, produced by Pippa Brown and Ben Cavey, and starred Sarah Solemani, Mathew Horne, Harry Enfield, Joanna Scanlan, Iain Glen and Jeremy Irvine.
In this trailer, you can catch a brief glimpse of a badger capering around in a fictional Cornish mayday parade. I played that badger. In case you're wondering, I also deliver the line: 'come get tupped by the Oss, young virgin.' It's sophisticated stuff.
