HIGH-RISE is an upcoming sci-fi film directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England), based on the 1975 novel of the same name by J.G. Ballard. It stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Elisabeth Moss.
In 1975 England, Dr. Robert Laing (Hiddleston) moves into a new apartment seeking two miles west of London, hoping to enjoy anonymity. He discovers 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 neighborly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the elevators fail but the party goes on.
