About the High-Rise 💬

  • Before the lines became blurred.

HIGH-RISE stars Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte Melville (Sienna Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Richard Wilder (Luke Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen Wilder (Elisabeth Moss); and Mr. Anthony Royal (Jeremy Irons), the enigmatic architect who designed the building.

Life for the residents of a tower block begins to run out of control.

Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.

ROYAL (Jeremy Irons) - The reclusive architect of the building, and its penthouse resident.

CHARLOTTE (Sienna Miller) - Seductive, professional, single mother, who lives upstairs.

WILDER (Luke Evans) - A failing documentary filmmaker and sexual predator.

HELEN (Elisabeth Moss) - Wilder's heavily pregnant, long-suffering wife.

MUNROW (Augustus Prew) - An obnoxious, self-assured, medical student.

MUNROW'S FATHER (Patrick Fitzymons) - A shadowy banker and the building's backer.

MUNROW’S MOTHER (Maggie Cronin) - A confirmed snob.

SIMMONS (Dan Skinner) - Royal's rebellious 'man servant'.

FAY (Stacy Martin) - A disgruntled teenage supermarket checkout clerk.

ROBERT THE CARETAKER (Tony Way) - The building's roundly abused, yet resilient chaperone.

LAURA (Leila Mimmack) - A pouting, nubile masseuse and part- time babysitter.

MERCER (Bill Paterson) - A retired barrister and sanguine owner of a soiled attaché case.

TOBY (Louis Suc) - Charlotte's pale, intelligent and observant son.

PC WHITE (Neil Maskell) - Easily brushed off.

MR. HILLMAN (Kenneth Hadley) - A confused old Navy man.

MRS. HILLMAN (Eileen Davies) - The penthouse's disgruntled cleaning lady.

LUCY (Alexandra Weaver) - A willowy, stoned, bohemian debutante.

JEAN (Julia Deakin) - Laing's tweedy middle-aged secretary.

MIRIAM (Victoria Wicks) - Laura's sensible schoolteacher mother.

VICKY (Emilia Jones) - Helen's tomboy daughter.

GEORGE (Joseph Harmon) - Helen's clingy youngest child.

DOMINIC (Dylan Edwards) - A friendly and likable cocktail waiter.

BOBBY (Toby Williams) - A roving soundman on Wilder's film crew.

ALICE - Laing's dead sister.

JANE'S DOG - An Afghan.

ANN'S HORSE - White.



HIGH-RISE is a respectful interpretation of J.G. Ballard's modern classic novel written in 1975 and the culmination of my filmmaking to date. I have endeavored to marry the emotional intensity of Down Terrace and Kill List, the comedy of Sightseers and the formal exercises of A Field in England. I hope you find it boldly funny and invigoratingly shocking.

I would like to thank the entire cast for their incredibly generous performances. Thanks particularly to Tom Hiddleston who gave up everything, including his clothes, to bring Dr. Robert Laing to the screen with grace, intelligence and emotional vulnerability, allowing me to take a stab at capturing the Ballardian tone.
