All of Us Strangers

Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal are mesmerising in Andrew Haigh’s haunting, ethereal romantic masterpiece, following solitary screenwriter Adam (Scott), whose life is transformed upon the arrival of young neighbour Harry (Mescal) – and the reappearance of his late parents.

Lone wolf screenwriter Adam (Andrew Scott, Fleabag) faces writer’s block at work in his flat on the outskirts of London. An unexpected companionship arrives in the form of the kindly young Harry (Paul Mescal, Normal People), a neighbour with whom Adam finds instant attraction and kinship. Turning back to photographs of his formative years, Adam then embarks on an emotional pilgrimage to his childhood home. Arriving in town, he is astonished to find his late parents (Jamie Bell, Billy Elliot, and Claire Foy, The Crown)- who tragically died decades earlier – as they were when he was young, ready to welcome him home.

This instant queer classic from celebrated director Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years) is a stunning, emotionally cathartic reflection on coming to terms with grief and overcoming loneliness, and a sincerely affecting testament to the life-altering, profoundly vulnerable processes of coming out and falling in love. Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal share electric chemistry in this heartbreaking, unforgettable and altogether otherworldly multi-award-nominated tearjerker.
