All of Us Strangers

New York Times Critics' Pick
105 mins.
Directed by Andrew Haigh

Last day Thursday, Feb. 22.

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.

One Golden Globe nomination: 

  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama (Andrew Scott)

“Scott’s performance is what makes it all sing. He’s an extraordinary stage actor, but onscreen, where you can see his eyes, he telegraphs repressed pain without seeming like a cliché. (That’s not to slight Mescal—how lucky to have a movie with two talented, beautiful, sad-eyed Irishmen—but Scott is the center here.)” Alissa Wilkinson. A New York Times Critic's Pick!

“So delicately crafted and intimately performed that it almost seems wrong to discuss its immaculate construction... I am in awe.” –Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD)
