In 2001 the tiny Pacific island of American Samoa suffered a world record 31-0 footballing defeat at the hands of Australia, garnering headlines across the world as the worst soccer team on the planet. A decade after that humiliating night, they remain rooted to the bottom of FIFA's World rankings, having scored only twice in 17 years. It would take a miracle-maker or a madman to turn the team's fortunes around – and in maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen the islanders somehow find both.

Affable Oxford undergraduate Miles (Irons) is courted by the Riot Club, an exclusive university society devoted to hedonism, but then a Club dinner in the back room of a pub becomes increasingly vile. Claflin is outstanding as the villainous Alistair, and Scherfig's film, in its portrayal of dangerously antisocial upper class twits, is appropriately discomforting and immersive.
