The Riot Cclub

Location: Filmhuis De Zwarte Doos

Lone Scherfig, UK 2014
English spoken


The Riot Club is an elite Oxford University dining society for young male poshos previously educated at Eton, St Paul's or Westminster. Or, if they are desperate to reach a quorum, Harrow.

Membership virtually guarantees a position in a future Tory Cabinet or as a captain of industry, and also confers the right, its members would seem to think, to behave appallingly.

It doesn't really exist – it is the invention of the screenwriter Laura Wade, adapting and expanding her own 2010 play Posh, which was set over the course of a single increasingly debauched and Buñuelian meal.

But it's a mark of the success of her vicious social satire that we can believe the Riot Club is only a lightly fictionalised version of the Bullingdon Club to which David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson belonged.
