One thing I like about Beyonce Knowles is…. she’s a powerful woman. I love Beyonce.

I’m one of those people that takes really long showers. 30 minutes is a good shower for me. I do a lot of my thinking in the shower, I think about life.

Douglas Booth on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show

The film’s called The Riot Club and it’s about this dining society at Oxford University.
This is a club based on real clubs that actually exist, and basically they have four dinners every year, and what they do is they go there and they just trash the place.
That’s their thing, you know, they book private rooms and then they go and they trash it. Eat dinner, get up to lots of terrible stuff and then they just smash the place, and they thrown down money and they go ‘Well we can afford it, why not?’
It’s just all about entitlement, but this really happens, and it’s kinda quite scary.

Douglas Booth explains The Riot Club 'in a PG version without giving the ending away' on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show

THE MOVIE SET: MR PORTER meets the men of the moment at the Toronto International Film Festival

MESSRS SAM CLAFLIN, MAX IRONS & DOUGLAS BOOTH

This trio of bright young things – Messrs Claflin and Irons are both 28 and Mr Booth is the baby of the bunch at 22 – have collected a few major roles between them. Mr Irons starred in The Host, Mr Claflin appeared in blockbuster franchises The Hunger Gamesand Pirates of the Caribbean, and Mr Booth recently had to repopulate the world with Ms Emma Watson in the Biblical epic Noah. 

They lead the “Brit Pack” of actors in The Riot Club, a screen adaptation of Ms Laura Wade’s 2010 play, Posh. The film, which debuted in Toronto, is inspired by Oxford University’s infamous Bullingdon Club – an elitist secret society of which the current British Prime Minister, Mayor of London and Chancellor of the Exchequer were all once members. 

The three actors, who play members of the Riot Club, display a warm camaraderie on set, trading jibes and mocking each other’s “blue steel” poses.

New still and review of The Riot Club [x]
"The dialogue is witty. The performances by the young male cast are superb. Claflin captures his character’s vitriol particularly well. Alistair’s sense that he is actually a victim of the system, scapegoated by envious hoi polloi and even his own peers, is palpable."
