PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Set in 1985, working-class student Brian Jackson (McAvoy) navigates his first year at Bristol University.
Got an announcement to make. I'm gonna be on University Challenge.
Julie Jackson: What a relief. I thought you were gonna say you were gay.
During the 'University Challenge' competition, Brian answers a question with "Calcium Sulphite" and the question-master says he gave the correct answer of "Calcium Sulphate" (a different compound). An alternative interpretation is that because Brian comes from Essex, he would pronounce "sulphate" like "sulphite".
