Set in 1985, working-class student Brian Jackson (McAvoy) navigates his first year at Bristol University. When the chance arises, he seizes his opportunity to live his dream of appearing on University Challenge. While romancing a posh girl, of course.
Set to join the pantheon of beloved Brit-coms like Four Weddings and Bridget Jones’s Diary — if there’s any justice — this is a true winner, and the smartest comedy you will see this year.
