A film is a window into the life of another, and, in the case of the upcoming Posh, a window into the lives of the upper-class elite. Director Lone Scherfig (An Education) brings the tale of rich people doing very terrible things to theaters this fall, with a screenplay written by Laura Wade based on her 2010 play of the same name.
Max Irons and Sam Claflin star as Oxford University freshmen who are determined to join the shadowy Riot Club – a place that holds a near-mythic status for aiding in the upward social ladder climb of its members. Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Holliday Grainger and Douglas Booth fill out the rest of the young cast whose starry eyed dreams of future success may or may not be dashed by the time the film is over. How much will these young adults be forced to endure before they are allowed into the secretive club?
Posh will be released in the U.K. on September 19th and will likely be making appearances at North American film festivals in the fall and winter as it seeks U.S. distribution.
Check out the first photos from the film above and below and let us know if you’re ready to see Lone Scherfig back with a “serious” effort after 2011’s romantic drama One Day.
