New High-Rise clip: Dr. Robert Laing meets The Architect


Opening in cinemas next week is Ben Wheatley‘s adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s cult novel High-Rise. Tom Hiddleston leads the all-star cast of the film, which also stars Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss. We have a brand new clip from the Match 18th released film, which features both Hiddleston and Irons as Dr. Robert Laing and The Architect respectively.

Here’s the plot.

1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea. Only much later, as he sits on his balcony eating the architect’s dog, does Dr. Robert Laing finally feel at home.

Watch the new clip from the hugely anticipated movie below.
