At first, the young men of The Riot Club donโ€™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 societyย of wealthy, elitist, hedonistic and undeniably privileged individuals.

Directed by Lone Scherfig, the film features some of the best of Britainโ€™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 lovingย ๐Ÿ™‚
