oda Pictures Canada (A Thunderbird Company) wants to remind you that the Canadian release of Ben Wheatley's High-Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Elisabeth Moss, is on May 20th.
Set in the 1970s, High-Rise is the story of Robert Laing (Hiddleston), a young doctor who is seduced by a residential tower block in London. The building is divided so the super-rich reside on the upper floors, the rich - including Laing - live in the middle, and the well-off live on the lower floors. With residents seduced by the insularity and glamour of its co-habitants, chaos ensues as the high-rise, and its social strata, begin to crumble. Imagine an adult Lord of the Flies cross-wired with the faulty towers in Terry Gilliam’s Brazil and an even more apocalyptic class polemic than Snowpiercer... It is a tour de force of astonishing geometrical precision and architectural ambition.
