All of Us Strangers

A man reconnects with his deceased parents after a mysterious neighbor triggers buried memories.


Why watch this film?

A melancholic queer drama by Andrew Haigh about healing the pain of the past to open ourselves to the future. With discreet fantasy elements, 'All of Us Strangers' is the story of a solitary writer, Adam (Andrew Scott, Fleabag), who lives alone in a remote London apartment tower, where his only neighbor is another man named Harry (Paul Mescal from Aftersun). However, he resists contact with him. In search of inspiration, he decides to travel to the house where he grew up before his parents' death, but to his surprise, he finds them alive and happy to reunite with him after so many years. The film doesn't bother with explanations, as its goal is to tell a story about conversations that never took place, apologies that never arrived, and traumas that were not healed, with powerful performances, beautiful visual metaphors, and a soundtrack that only enhances its bittersweet nostalgia.
