Oscar-nominated Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, has a new trailer for its anticipated March 27 US release. Scherfig is a Dogme 95-er and Oscar-nominated for her film An Education (2009). Although most of Scherfig’s eight films are romantic comedies, The Riot Club is darker material. In the film, young Oxford University students join a “Riot Club” and exercise their darkest thoughts about “poor people”; probably murder ensues. The cast is a chorus of rising Britons led by Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer, Downton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay, as well as Sam Claflin, Max Irons, and Douglas Booth. The film is an adaptation by Laura Wade of her own West End play, Posh.
Behind the camera Scherfig has been a creative and detailed director since her breakthrough film Italian for Beginners (2000), which won the Silver Berlin Bear in 2001. Watch the new trailer for The Riot Club below:
