All of Us Strangers

Q&A with filmmaker Andrew Haigh and actors Andrew Scott & Jamie Bell, moderated by JBFC Board President Janet Maslin

One night in his near-empty London tower block, screenwriter Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbor (Paul Mescal). A relationship develops between them, as Adam then finds himself drawn back to his 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 ago.

"It’s a thing of beauty, heartfelt and unforgettable."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"A poignant, deeply melancholic exercise on the attempt to bridge the past with the present, a cosmic inquiry into resolving all that was unsaid through second chances that never were."
Tomris Laffly, The Wrap
