About the Film
Adam, a lonely writer living in a mundane London apartment block is immersed in writing a screenplay dealing with his parents who died 30 years ago. As a result, his day-to-day world is often one of surreal fantasies wherein his mother and father are still alive and residing in his childhood home. A chance encounter with Harry, his mysterious neighbor, leads to a passionate love affair that may be just the thing Adam needs to help him set aside his grief and return to a sense of reality.
Andrew Scott (Fleabag, 1917) and Paul Mescal star in Andrew Haigh’s adaptation of the critically-acclaimed 1987 Japanese novel Strangers by Taichi Yamada. Thematically rich and nuanced, the film and the cast have been nominated for and won numerous awards, including Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Direcor at the 2023 British Independent Film Awards.
