A brilliantly book-smart young man heads to college bent on leading his school on a popular TV quiz show, only to get caught up in a series of personal entanglements. James McAvoy ('The Last King of Scotland') stars as Brian, the blue-collar brainiac whose rise up the social ladder at Bristol University hits a snag when he falls for an upper-crust beauty. But can he keep it together to achieve his lifelong dream: an appearance on the game show 'University Challenge'?

Critics Consensus: Starter For 10 is a spirited coming-of-age tale that remains charming and witty even as it veers into darker teritory. The unique setting of a quiz show makes the film wittier than your average romantic comedy.
