Saturday 12th March, 6.00pm

We are delighted to welcome renowned producer Jeremy Thomas for a Q&A
with Cambridge University's Yvonne Salmon following this screening.

"The brutalism begins with the architecture and extends all the way
down to the residents." - Variety

"The kind of cinematic madness we desperately need." - The Independent

"Serves up an orgiastic mayhem on a silver platter." - The Telegraph

J. G. Ballard’s dystopian novel about society disintegrating within a
giant tower block is brought to the screen by the maverick
writer-director partnership of Amy Jump and Ben Wheatley (Kill
List, Sightseers). Awarded his biggest budget yet, Wheatley ushers on
board established stars and ace production designer Mark Tildesley (The
Constant Gardener, 28 Days Later). Dr Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston), an
affluent new tenant of the titular high-rise, quickly attracts the
attentions of neighbour Charlotte (Sienna Miller) and then of Helen
(Elisabeth Moss), who happens to be married to the socially stratified
community’s resident troublemaker (Luke Evans).

As tensions build, the brutalist tower that its architect (a supremely
laconic Irons) imagined would be “a crucible for change” gradually
descends into anarchy in this great-looking, darkly hilarious drama.
