1985; Britain has had to endure race riots, minor strikes and a milk-snatching Prime Minister, but for Brian (James McAvoy - THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND), life seems more complicated. A working class kid commanding a wealth of general knowledge, Brian's ambition to appear on TV's UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE is within his grasp, but communicating with the fairer sex proves to be something of a non-starter. With a place on the show assured, Brian is ready for anything - anything except for falling in love with fellow student and team-mate Alice, that is. To complicate matters further, Brian must resist the temptation of animal rights activist Rebecca and overcome the nagging doubt that he's about to become the pretentious student his childhood friends fear.
With a wall-to-wall soundtrack of 80s chart toppers and cameos from some of Britain's hottest comedy talent, STARTER FOR 10 is a romantic comedy with a bittersweet edge and guaranteed to win you over.
