The Riot Club

Directed by Lone Sherfig, this British film was adapted from a play by Laura Wade called Posh.

No, it’s not a biopic about Victoria Beckham (a.k.a. Posh Spice). Although the subject does relate to the notion of aristocratic privilege and luxe wealth that Beckham was channeling through her character.

Instead, Wade’s inspiration was the notorious Bullington Club at Oxford University where the scions of Britain’s upper crust congregated to essentially run amok for a few years before taking their rightful place (in their minds, anyway) as the future political and economic leaders of their class-riddled country.

The Riot Club screens tonight at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m. Here’s the trailer:
