Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elizabeth Moss, HIGH RISE chronicles the savage breakdown of social order inside a giant residential apartment block.
Based on J.G. Ballard’s seminal 1975 sci-fi novel, HIGH-RISE stars Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, 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 neighbour 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.
HIGH-RISE opens in Irish cinemas March 18, 2016.
