Plot

All Of Us Strangers is based on the 1987 novel Strangers by Japanese author and screenwriter Taichi Yamada. While the novel is set in Tokyo and centres on a middle-aged screenwriter named Harada, the film is set in London and follows a younger screenwriter named Adam, played by Andrew Scott. After a chance encounter with his neighbour Harry (played by Paul Mescal), Adam’s life descends into unsettling mystery. He returns to his childhood home to find his long-dead parents somehow alive – and appearing to be the same age as they were when they passed away thirty years before.

Cast

Alongside frontrunners Scott (Fleabag’s famous priest) and Mescal (Normal People’s Connell, and the star of recent acclaimed films including Aftersun, The Lost Daughter and God’s Creatures), All Of Us Strangers boasts a star-studded cast. Adam’s parents are played by Claire Foy (Elizabeth II in The Crown) and Jamie Bell (known for Billy Eliot, Rocketman and Shining Girls). The film was directed by Andrew Haigh, the British filmmaker behind titles such as Weekend, 45 Years and Looking.

In an interview with Empire, Haigh spoke about the dynamic between the two leads, saying: ‘It was so clear that they had chemistry early on. Paul so wanted to work with Andrew, and Andrew with Paul, that it felt like I was watching a love affair happen. That’s what good casting is. You watch a love affair blossom.’
