Synopsis

Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University, The Riot Club follows Miles (Max Irons) and Alistair (Sam Claflin), two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. The Riot Club is directed by Lone Scherfig, who most recently helmed 'One Day', and the Best Picture Academy Award nominee 'An Education'. It is produced by Pete Czernin and Graham Broadbent of Blueprint Pictures ('The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel', 'Seven Psychopaths'). Screenwriter Laura Wade has adapted her critically-acclaimed play, with development support from the BFI Film Fund and Film4. 'Posh' premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2010, before transferring to the West End.
