At first, the young men of The Riot Club don’t appear too dissimilar to any gathering of adult students enjoying the freedoms synonymous with university life. That is until a fateful dinner where things take a dramatically dark and villainous turn.

This is a movie about two first-year Oxford University students and their experience as part of The Riot Club, a secret society of wealthy, elitist, hedonistic and undeniably privileged individuals.

Directed by Lone Scherfig, the film features some of the best of Britain’s young acting talent. Names that include Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Max Irons, etc.

Watch it for the story, an insight into the usually inaccessible world of a very small group of highly privileged university students, the cinematography and a reminder of just how punishing naivety can be.

here is the trailer that had me sold…

Trailer song: ‘Inhaler’ by Foals.

Happy Film loving 🙂
