The first trailer for All of Us Strangers has been released online. Based on the novel Strangers from Taichi Yamada, the movie is written and directed by Andrew Haigh and stars Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Jamie Bell, and Claire Foy.
The film had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, and our editor-in-chief Joey Magidson got a chance to see the movie during the festival. In his review for the movie, he stated that “All of Us Strangers will speak to its audience in a number of ways. Parents, romantic partners, whomever you’ve struggled with despite loving, this movie will bring up a lot. It’s intentional, and doesn’t do it with malice, but even with that soft touch, it does cut deep. So, just keep that in mind. Provided you’re not overtly sensitive to that, this film will strike you as incredibly well realized, if not quite as personal.” You can read his full thoughts here.
Here is the plot synopsis:
“One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbor Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before.”
