The Riot Club

The Riot Club


Filthy, rich, spoilt, rotten.

The reputation of an exclusive and infamous upper-class Oxford University club – The Riot Club – reaches disturbing new lows in this tertiary thriller from Lone Scherfig, director of the Oscar-nominated An Education. For two first-year students, a single evening could make or break their precious reputation. Based on the critically-acclaimed play Posh by Laura Wade.

  • I was drained and quivering with fury and disgust. Full Review

  • The performances of the young cast are committedly brittle, especially Ben Schnetzer playing the antithesis of his Tory-baiting role in Pride. Full Review

  • Well played across the board, The Riot Club is an entertaining glimpse into the dark side of privilege. Yet it lacks the richness and insight to be anything more. Full Review

  • While the dark drama is never dull, its portrait of upper-crust entitlement run amok is seldom surprising either. Full Review

  • Brits might object to such an enraging portrayal, which veers between salacious and cynical, though Scherfig's unique perspective is just one more reason she was such a smart choice to handle this material. Full Review
