The Riot ClubCharming Miles Richard and chip on his shoulder Alistair Ryle arrive at Oxford to study history. The pair soon catch the eye of The Riot Club, a centuries-old secret society dedicated to dining, drinking an debauchery. It’s lucrative hedonism at its very finest and most extreme, and Miles and Alistair are having the time of their lives – right until the moment one fancy pub dinner escalates into a night of drugs, sex, and violence. Carnage and tragedy ensue.Keywords:
