The Riot Club
Inspired by a true story. Best friends Alistair (Sam Claflin) and Miles (Max Irons) start their first year at Oxford University. Miles went to the right schools and cultivated the right connections to gain his place at Oxford, but he is ambivalent about social status and is happy with his girlfriend from a modest background. Alistair meanwhile is a snob, with aspirations to follow in the footsteps of his Conservative MP uncle. Both become members of the Riot Club, a long established elite drinking club priding itself on hedonism and the belief that money can buy anything. Having been barred from most establishments in Oxford, they have their annual dinner at the function room in a country pub. Through a booze-fueled evening their behavior gets increasingly out of control – eventually turning to violence.
