A special preview of High Rise, the new film based on JG Ballard’s 1975 novel.

High Rise tells the tale of life in a modern luxury tower block running out of control where the wealthy tenants – cut off from the rest of society – are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Tensions are increased by a documentary filmmaker living in the block who is determined to highlight injustice. Parties on one floor lead to attacks on others with mayhem and the rules of the jungle resulting. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss, the film shows Ballard’s classic tale of human society slipping into violent reverse in closed communities for the rich.
