Weird, I thought this was gonna be a Soda Pictures release? Anyway, I'll be avoiding this film at all costs I'm fairly sure.

I'm going to check this out next week, reviews seem to fluctuate between loving it and not liking it.

Granted, there is definitely a big anti-conservative shout going on at the pictures at the moment between this and Pride.

It's based on Laura Wade's play Posh which was very good. The film is apparently so over exaggerated as to border on pantomime. Which is quite an achievement when you consider real Bullingdon members like Fat Dave, Gidiot and BoJo The Clown

Only in Canada, it was the first release after the Soda-Thunderbird merger...

Anyone seen it yet, and is it good? I thought the trailer made it look pretty horrible, but I've also heard some good things about it, so I might check it out at some point.

Posted my review here, although if you want the short version. Great middle act, but some of the broadening has led to some softening of material.

I liked it a mot more than I thought I would. It does a really good job of setting the Club and its members (for the most part) as either something to enjoy vicariously or something to laugh at (even though you know these are spoilt, reckless, annoying toffs), leading up to a middle act that is happy to show you unapologetically awful they can be - even the silly ones.

My only complaint about it is that the final act is extremely short but, being as it was originally a play, it makes sense that so much of it centres around one event/location.

Definitely worth checking out, it's a much smarter film than some of the ads are making it out to be.

Since it's being released by Universal... I assumed this will be region free?

Have you brought it and discovered it isn't? Because Universal UK do occasionally lock things, but it's mostly just Carnival Films productions (like Downtown Abbey and Dracula) they do it for. I personally keep telling people not to assume anything from Universal UK is region free, but I'm always shouted down for it...

It will more than likely be region free, but since Universal only has UK & Ireland rights, I'd wait for confirmation...

I'd appreciate it if anyone who got this disc can tell me if it's region free or not? If not, I'll just buy it on itunes

Thanks a bunch
