Tom Hiddleston stars in Ben Wheatley's adaptation of J.G. Ballard's novel about the residents of a tower block.

Directed by Ben Wheatley and written by Amy Jump (Kill List, Sightseers, A Field In England), High-Rise is an adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 novel. The film centres around Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston), a young doctor who is seduced by a residential tower block and its visionary creator (Jeremy Irons), who has designed the building as a luxurious world apart from the problems of the city it stands in. But when discord sets in among the residents and they split into tribal factions, Laing finds himself in the middle of the mounting violence.
