Portrait of Tom Hiddleston as Dr Robert Laing in High Rise.
Ben Wheatley's High Rise, the film adapted from J.G. Ballard's novel about the structure of a capitalistic society found within one high rise apartment building. Tom Hiddleston stars as the man who runs the whole thing. The cast includes Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, James Purefoy, Elisabeth Moss, and Keeley Hawes.
High-Rise is directed by British filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England), from legendary producer Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor, Sexy Beast, A Dangerous Method, 13 Assassins, Kon-Tiki, Only Lovers Left Alive), and written by Amy Jump (Kill List, A Field in England). It's based on J.G. Ballard's acclaimed 1975 novel of the same name: "When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on 'enemy' floors." The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and also played London and Fantastic Fest this year.
