Ben Wheatley directs this dystopian action thriller set in 1975 London, adapted from the novel by J.G. Ballard. Tom Hiddleston plays Robert Laing, a wealthy young doctor who joins an insular community that resides in a luxury high-rise building where the floor you inhabit is determined by your status and affluence. Designed by renowned architect Anthony Royal (Jeremy Irons), Laing takes up residence on the 27th floor or, halfway up the hierarchy. He befriends documentary maker Richard Wilder (Luke Evans) and his wife (Elizabeth Moss), who are confined to a lower floor. Wilder is bent on mobilising a class war and toppling the serene isolated community, which divides the residents into aggressive factions. The story follows Laing as he navigates amongst the chaos and complete dismantling of societal order.
