Searchlight Pictures have released the official UK Trailer for Andrew Haigh‘s emotional tender drama All Of Us Strangers.
The film stars Andrew Scott (Fleabag), Paul Mescal (Aftersun), Jamie Bell and Claire Foy. The film is based on the novel Strangers written by Taichi Yamada, is it a romantic drama? Fantasy? Psychological drama? A ghost story? If we go by those who watched it at Telluride Film Festival, our heart strings will be pulled in all directions. I would say all of the aforementioned genres.
This is also the British director Andrew Haigh‘s first film since 2017 Lean On Pete.
We find ourselves in London, Adam (Scott) has a chance encounter with his neighbour Harry (Mescal). Slowly the relationship develops into something romantic memories drag Adam back to his childhood home where his parents seem to be living, despite dying 3 decades ago.
One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before.
All Of Us Strangers will arrive in UK and Irish cinemas from 26th January 2024 (22nd December in USA). If you are heading to BFI London Film Festival, you can see the film on 8th October.
