Andrew Scott, Jamie Bell and Claire Foy star in a new personal drama about revisiting a long-gone past.
All of Us Strangers, the new drama from Fox Searchlight Pictures, has just released its trailer and shows that even if it’s incredibly painful or filled with sorrow, you can go home again.
The official synopsis from Fox Searchlight Pictures reads,
“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.”
The cast includes Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Jamie Bell and Claire Foy. Graham Broadbent, Pete Czernin and Sarah Harvey are serving as the producers on the film. Joining them are co-producers Jeremy Campbell and Emma Mager.
The executive producers include Diarmuid Mckeown, Ben Knight, Ollie Madden, Daniel Battsek and Farhana Bhula. The movie is written and directed by Andrew Haigh and is based on the novel by Taichi Yamada.
The film’s lead, Andrew Scott, expressed his excitement about taking the project, “I was immediately blown away by the script. It’s incredibly personal to him [Haigh], but like great writers, he makes you feel like it’s personal to everybody, and I felt very attached to it.” Jamie Bell would add his enthusiasm, “There’s been other films that have dealt with the afterlife, or tricking audiences into thinking that people are alive when they’re not. Very successful versions of that have mostly been in an intense genre space. We don’t really see these movies in a dramatic space.”
Haigh made the film extra personal by filming the movie at his actual childhood home, “When I thought of a childhood home, it was my own, and as we were preparing to shoot, I went back to the area I grew up, just outside of Croydon. I hadn’t been there for forty years, not since I moved away when I was ten. Perhaps foolishly, I decided it might be a good idea to try and film in the house where we used to live.”
