The first thing I did when I arrived in London on Saturday 4th was to
go watch The Riot Club (sadly it only comes out in France on December
31). I was really happy about this, cause it was Sam’s project I was the
most looking forward to! London underground was full of The Riot Club
posters, and I couldn’t be happier.
My Wow”, what an incredible movie. A true masterpiece. The cast is just
outstanding. We feel like we are drowned to the “Posh World”
immediately. From what I had read on Twitter, everyone was talking about
how much they hated Sam’s character. But I can say, Alistair Ryle was
definitely my favorite character. And this needs explanations cause as
you may know, he is a terrible character. Sam portrayed beautifully a
young fragile boy, who has always lived in his brother’s shadow, who was
brought up in the “Posh World” and who doesn’t really get to choose his
The fact that he gets assaulted, just reinforce all these ideas people tried to put in his head: despise poor people.
And this smart and fragile young man, joins The Riot Club because he needs recognition.
when this character becomes really messed up, jealousy leads him in a
very dark place. It’s almost like he feels no more emotion, and when the
dinner scene shows up, you can see Alistair Ryle in his glory.
Mischievous. Manipulating. Mean. Trying to be the best. Trying to be a
legend. Trying to get admiration from everyone. Sam blew my mind away.
He was more brilliant than ever. So talented that he can make you have
pity for a character who deserves no mercy for what he has done.
The movie ends with a beautiful close up. You definitely don’t want to miss that!
favorite moment stays the monologue part at the dinner scene: so
powerful, driven, captivating.. we feel so much rage coming from him,
that it turns out like a masterpiece.
can say it’s my new favorite movie Sam has ever been in. I even went to
watch it a second time on Sunday. And if you’re over 15, you should go
run to the cinema to watch this wonderful movie. Great cast. Great
director. Great acting. Wish I could’ve seen the play from Laura Wade.
Sunday, I went to the hmv store, for the signing with Lily Collins and
Sam. It was truly fantastic to see him again and be able to talk him,
and show him SCF’s support.
Monday, we couldn’t attend the Q&A at the Apple Store, because it
was at the same time than picking up the tickets for the premiere.
Thanks to Lionsgate and ThinkJam for allowing us to organize a ticket
competition and attend the premiere. Such a shame it was raining. But
all that matters is the movie.
|This moment when it was raining, camera was blurry cause of the rain & I didn’t know Sam was pulling a funny face lol|
and foremost, the movie is a bit different from the book. For instance,
Alex doesn’t have any children, he doesn’t have a brother, we don’t know
much about him being a surgeon, etc.. However the movie focuses completely on the strong friendship, just like the book.
The forgotten kiss between teenagers Alex and Rosie, states the chemistry between Sam and Lily Collins right away.
A pure romantic comedy with perfect acting and an amazing director.
on Alex Stewart, Sam’s character, his personality was very true to the book.
Sam doesn’t need to say a word to make us feel things. Alex’s wedding
scene is just the proof of that. All the emotions we could read on his
face were 10 times better than words. And this went along beautifully
with Rosie’s speech, very emotional. It was my favorite scene.
Funniest scene to me was the one when Rosie comes to visit Alex, when he is with Sally (Tamsin Egerton) – dinner table scene.
Lots of really
emotional scenes: when Alex meets baby Katie, when Alex says he isn’t
ready to be a dad but has prepared the room for child who happened to
not be his, all the airports scenes, the fight scene in Boston, the
“magic silence” scene, when he writes THE letter, the funeral scene with
the teddy bear, when he drinks his beer alone at the bar, when he sees
Rosie s wedding invitation, the roof scene when they finally mention the
And finally… The end of the movie, magical scene.
think Sam was amazing in this movie, as always. It’s so interesting to
see him in something different, and i look forward to maybe see him in
comedies in the future.
Congrats to all the cast and crew, and director, for making such a good movie.
Can’t wait to watch it again!
Here was SCF’s story in London, hope you like it
Big thanks to Sam and his family for always being so kind to me!
