Lone Scherfig United Kingdom, 2014

ruth's rating of the film The Riot Club

Disappointing despite maintaining a good focus, playing largely over one night. For all its hedonistic party scenes it becomes swiftly tiresome and fails to dig under the surface or offer any genuine revelation or change. There are moments of discomfort and excitement but the film trades in any deep social or political commentary for easy and predictable jibes intending to rile rather than expand.
