Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal star in Andrew Haigh’s latest film, a supernatural romance. Take a look at the All of Us Strangers trailer.
Andrew Haigh is, without a doubt, one of the most prolific British directors, especially when it comes to queer cinema. He’s already seduced us with his achingly beautiful films Weekend, Lean on Pete and 45 Years, but now he’s serving us a romance with a side of ghosts. Yes, you read that right, ghosts.
All of Us Strangers will play at next month’s BFI London Film Festival and has already garnered rave reviews from other festivals. Ahead of the film’s January release, Searchlight Pictures have very kindly released a trailer for the film.
Watch the All of Us Strangers trailer below.
Inject it straight into my veins, now! Needless to say, with all this talent involved, we are very excited for Haigh’s latest cinematic endeavour.
Paul Mescal might just be the hottest leading man in Hollywood right now, thanks to his Oscar-nominated turn in Charlotte Wells’ Aftersun and his recent casting in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator 2. Sure, the trailer for All of Us Strangers is only a couple minutes long, but his chemistry with Andrew Scott looks to be through the roof.
But it’s not all about the romance. Scott’s Adam peculiarly encounters his very dead parents, in their former glory, in his childhood home, making All of Us Strangers also a ghost story. Spooky!
All of Us Strangers is adapted from Taichi Yamada’s novel Strangers, which was released in 1987. The film is also rather personal to Haigh, who spoke to Vanity Fair about it recently, describing the whole experience as “cathartic”.
“To suddenly deal with my own past at the same time as I was telling a story about someone else dealing with their past—I’m not sure if it was foolish, emotionally or mentally,” Haigh said.
You can catch All of Us Strangers at the BFI London Film Festival in October or in cinemas from January 26 onwards.
