AD PNGAudio Description (AD) will be available on all screenings.

Moving into an imposing brutalist skyscraper on the edge of an unnamed English metropolis, suave neurologist Laing (Tom Hiddleston) becomes enraptured by neighbouring occupants, particularly the building’s supercilious architect Anthony Royal (Jeremy Irons). As poorer inhabitants, preceded by a psychotic documentarian (Luke Evans), register that amenities are unfairly distributed however, a rage develops that goes unchecked and when a vicious anarchy prevails, Laing opts merely to adapt.

A complex black comedy more interested in degeneracy than class warfare, Wheatley’s High-Rise provides an inimitable take on Ballard’s riveting novel about societal collapse. (Notes by Alice Butler.)
