'Starter For 10' is the 2006 film adaptation of a 2003 novel by David Nicholls, starring James McAvoy ('Atonement', 'The Last King Of Scotland' and err, 'Wanted'), as Brian Jackson, and Rebecca Hall ('The Prestige', 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona').
It's a coming-of-age film centering around the trials and tribulations of first year university student Brian Jackson's quest to appear on 'University Challenge'. The film covers Brian's romantic misadventures (albeit in a overly familiar manner) and the problems he faces in bridging the gap between social classes. The acting cast, which also includes Catherine Tate, Dominic Cooper and James Corden, provides a snapshot of rising British talent, and rather bizarrely the film was produced by none other than Tom Hanks.
A well acted, reasonably well crafted film. I challenge you not to fall in love with Rebecca Hall.
