Overview

Well-to-do doctor Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) moves into the 25th floor of an experimental high-rise apartment complex on the outskirts of London in 1975, attracted by the upper-class lifestyle promoted by its architect (Jeremy Irons). The building is secluded from the outside world and functions as its own autonomous community; in addition, it's organized by a rigid caste system, with the least wealthy residents situated on the lower floors. Laing befriends a documentary filmmaker (Luke Evans) who lives on the second floor, and soon becomes aware of the social inequities within the complex. As tensions between the tenants boil over, an all-out war erupts that divides the classes into violent tribes vying for the top floors. Ben Wheatley directed this wildly imaginative and chaotic adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 novel, with Amy Jump serving as screenwriter. High-Rise premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Daniel Gelb
