From J.G. Ballard, the author of the celebrated dystopian classics Kingdom Come, The Drowned World and The Drought High Rise, is a prescient story of class warfare. The film adaptation by acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List) features Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, BAFTA Award nominees Tom Hiddleston and Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Golden Globe Award winner Elisabeth Moss.
When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
