High Rise (2016)
Friday 24th June 2016
Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston, The Night Manager) feels like he's made it - seeking soulless anonymity, he's the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class.
Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building's eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Moss); and Mr. Royal (Irons), the enigmatic architect who designed the building. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing.
But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.
From acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers), and based on the classic novel by J.G. Ballard, comes a unique and dazzling vision of a dystopian Britain on the brink of social meltdown.
High Rise is released on DVD and Blu-ray by StudioCanal on 18th July 2016.
