In French Canada and abroad, the series of films spawned from Les Boys is both beloved by audiences and box offices alike. But the title garçons in Les Boys are hardly young dudes at all — they’re grown men!
In this original, fun and hilarious prequel set in 1965, we find Les Boys as they originally were: hardy teenagers. Dreaming of victory in the Holiday tournament, the team is on Christmas vacation, but it’s anything but a restful experience: they have goals to make and trophies to win.
Full of wonderful highs and lows that evoke the rollercoaster experience of adolescence, When We Were Boys is a rare thing in cinema: a terrific and successful prequel.
