Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club was announced as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup this morning.
Starring Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Sam Reid the film centers on two first-year students at Oxford University who join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.
The movie is described as “a scathing dissection of the British class system” and the TIFF screening will serve as its world premiere.
The trailer was released a little while ago, but it missed our news beat, so here it is, along with the official synopsis:
A privileged young man is inducted into the exclusive, debaucherous company of Oxford’s elite “Riot Club,” in this scathing dissection of the British class system.
No U.S. distribution yet, but it opens in the U.K. on September 19th 2014.
