Here’s a first look at Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal’s sexy, mind-bending movie, All of Us Strangers!
Back in March, we learned about the Searchlight pictures film All of Us Strangers, starring Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal, and we were immediately on board. Now that we know more, and now that we’ve seen the first image from the movie, we are officially obsessed!
“One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (a screenwriter, played by Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with his mysterious neighbor Harry (Paul Mescal) that punctures the rhythm of his everyday life,” the official description begins. “As Adam and Harry get closer, Adam is pulled back to his childhood home where it appears his long-dead parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell) are both living and look the same age as the day they died thirty years before.”
While we hoped the film would have gay themes when it was first announced, now that we’ve seen this first look at it, it seems our hopes have come true! It looks like we have a gay Oscar contender on our hands!
Mescal is one of the hottest actors in the world right now, having earned an Emmy nomination for his role in the miniseries Normal People in 2020, and then an Oscar nomination for his role as a troubled father in the 2022 movie Aftersun.
Scott, who is gay, has been nominated for a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild Awards for his role as the priest in Fleabag, and was nominated for an Emmy for his role in Black Mirror.
The film comes from gay director Andrew Haigh, known for writing and directing the award-winning film Weekend and co-creating the HBO series Looking.
All of Us Strangers is set to release in theaters on December 22, 2023.
