High-Rise

By FHW Marketing


Synposis

The unnerving tale of life in a modern tower block running out of control. Within the concealing walls of an elegant forty-storey tower block, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on 'enemy' floors and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for technological mayhem...In this classic visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as the inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, recreate a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

High-Rise is a visceral adaptation of JG Ballard's 1970s novel, brought to the screen by British filmmaker Ben Wheatley and his longtime writing collaborator and wife Amy Jump (Sightseers, A Field in England). Set in a dystopian alternate past, the film boasts a stellar British cast including Tom Hiddlestone, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Elizabeth Moss. The project received funding from the British Film Institute along with several other partners.
