Toby MacDonald

Director Bio

Toby MacDonald started working on film sets as a runner at the age of 16. He is the director of the BAFTA-nominated short films Je t’aime John Wayne (2000) and Heavy Metal Drummer (2005). He has directed award-winning commercials working with Partizan London, as well as the series My Life In Film for BBC2.


Toby Macdonald’s wonderfully-staged debut film is a re-working of Cyrano de Bergerac’s classic story, set against the backdrop of a rough-and-tumble boarding school for boys. Amberson (Alex Lawther) may be awkward at sports, but his imagination comes to the fore when he helps the handsome school hero (who is more lad than poet) pursue Agnes (Pauline Etienne), the daughter of the visiting French teacher, despite being enamoured with her himself. A lovely comedy based on a timeless story.
