All of Us Strangers just released a new trailer, and it is all set to be the standout tearjerker of gay cinema this year!
Directed by acclaimed gay filmmaker Andrew Haigh, known for his remarkable works like Weekend and Looking, this captivating romantic drama delves deep into the human experience, posing questions that tug at the heartstrings and stir the soul. Haigh's personal touch is unmistakable, as parts of the movie were shot in his own childhood home, and the film generated immense buzz during the fall festival season.
The narrative centers on Adam (Andrew Scott), a middle-aged gay screenwriter living a solitary life in a London high-rise, who has his world turned upside down when his younger, attractive neighbor Harry (Paul Mescal) enters the picture. Their chemistry is undeniable, yet something holds Adam back.
Simultaneously, Adam finds himself drawn back to his childhood home, where he encounters his deceased parents, portrayed by Claire Foy and Jamie Bell. The twist? They appear just as he remembers them — raising questions about the supernatural.
While the film tantalizingly hints at mysteries, it primarily delves into themes of grief, self-acceptance, and the enduring loneliness that can plague the lives of gay men. Early reactions from its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival reveal a fearless commitment to the romance by Scott and Mescal, promising a passionate and unforgettable portrayal of love.
Moreover, All Of Us Strangers is set to evoke tears from its audience, as evident in its tender first trailer, featuring the poignant Pet Shop Boys' cover of "Always On My Mind." Check out the trailer below and mark your calendars for the film’s December 22 release in the US.
