Everybody’s favourite God of mischief Tom Hiddleston stars as Dr Robert Laing, looking for seclusion he moves into a new apartment in a luxurious high-rise and discovers far more that he bargained for with its odd residents. Set in the 70s and featuring the likes of Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss, High-Rise looks set to become a cult classic.
Here’s the official synopsis.
1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea. Only much later, as he sits on his balcony eating the architect’s dog, does Dr. Robert Laing finally feel at home…..
High-Rise is released in UK cinemas on March 18, check out the new trailer below.
