I know, since the creation of Made in Chelsea we are meant to watch television that is catered about the rich and pathetic. “Oh look at us, look at the things we get up too, aren’t we entertaining?” That entire “we’re better than you” attitude whilst trying to reason causing catastrophe just shows a certain divide between classes. But there is something about The Riot Club that looks delightfully compelling. It’s almost as if the debauchery is caused by the pressure to upstanding the sentiments of the club. With strong acting from rising star Sam Claflin and new comers Douglas Booth and Max Irons (yes, that is the son of that enigmatic Jeremy,) The Riot Club looks brilliant, with tensions and moments boiling throughout.
Although people at Oxford University have already blasted the film for portraying the famous University as secular and lacking diversity, The Riot Club is separate from the normality of Oxford and showcases people who believe they are better than others. That’s not a tricky thing to find, but the escalating events of The Riot Club are enthralling in this trailer. Based on a play named Posh by Laura Wade and directed by Lone Scherfig, this could be an entertaining and compelling drama. And it's not just the man candy.
