High-Rise

“Later, as he sat on his balcony eating the dog, Dr. Robert Laing reflected on the unusual events that had taken place within this huge apartment building during the previous three months.”

… And so goes the opening sentence of J.G. Ballard’s acclaimed 1975 dystopian novel HIGH-RISE, faithfully adapted by one of the most innovative British directors in decades, Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST, SIGHTSEERS, A FIELD IN ENGLAND), for the screen. Tom Hiddleston stars 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 (Sienna Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Luke Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Elisabeth Moss); and Mr. Royal (Jeremy 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.

“Ben Wheatley’s J.G. Ballard adaptation, starring an insouciant, debonair Tom Hiddleston, serves up orgiastic mayhem on a silver platter.” – The Telegraph

“Batshit crazy. Don’t expect a thriller in the seat-edge sense, but you will be thrilled — and repulsed — by this bold, faithful adaptation of Ballard’s ever-prescient picture of First World strife.” – Empire Magazine

“A vicious, surreal satire. Wheatley is one of the most interesting filmmakers to come out of the United Kingdom in ages.”- Rolling Stone

“… a screaming good time, replete with baroque dialogue and Marxist undertones so heavy they might just be tones.” – ScreenCrush

HIGH-RISE (Ben Wheatley, 2016 / 119 mins) | Life for the residents of an ultra-modern (for the 1970s), luxury high-rise tower block outside of London begins to run out of control when the residents descend into a state of hedonistic tribal warfare.
