A 90s/early 2000s movie about a teenage comic-book enthusiast

Hi everyone!

8-10 years ago I saw a movie in Polish TV(I am 100% sure it was not a TV episode). It was in English, and in color. The plot went something like this(I only remember certain scenes):

  • there was a boy who attended Catholic school and really loved comic-books
  • he was picked on by the nuns who ran the place because he drawed them as comic-book characters in flashy outfits and dirty poses
  • there was a girl whom he really liked and strated dating throughout the movie
  • he slept with the girl on an attic, and a ghost of a woman appeared with whom he talked
  • and, finally, there was a cage in a forest where a lion lived; the boy’s friend once fell in it when they watched the lion(not sure if the friend was eaten)

I hope someone remembers the movie, it’s been haunting me for several years!
