Overview

In a lonely London tower block, screenwriter Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with his mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal). As their relationship deepens, Adam finds himself inexorably pulled back to his childhood home and the parents who died when he was a boy. His memories start to merge with his present life, and he struggles to reconcile the future he wants with Harry and the past he has yet to fully accept. All of Us Strangers is a tender portrait of love and longing at the intersection of chosen family and blood relations, beautifully realised and told with authenticity and heart.

“Tremendous...a beautiful fantasy-romance.”

The Guardian UK

“A thing of beauty, heartfelt and unforgettable.”

The Hollywood Reporter

“A miraculously uncheesy study of loneliness, forgiveness and, above all, the power of love.”

Time Out

Why You Should See This Film

Unapologetically romantic, swooning and gorgeous, All of Us Strangers uses the form of a mystery to explore grief and the search for connection. Writer/director Andrew Haigh (Weekend) has loosely adapted Taichi Yamada's novel into a transformative and deeply personal work that lives and breathes the experiences of love and loss, anchored in incredible performances by Scott and Mescal. Soaring sad-pop anthems abound as we whirl from transcendent club to quiet contemplation in a film that embodies dancefloor moments of fleeting connection and intense kickon D&Ms with equal dexterity.
