High-Rise, J. G. Ballard’s 1975 Lord-of-the-Flies-in-a-modern-apartment-building novel, has been filmed. In the novel, residents of the building’s closed environment are grouped by social class, with the poor at the bottom and the very rich at the top. Then things start to fall apart….
Pretty impressive cast in this one: Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, and Reece Shearsmith.
The film’s UK release date is 18 March 2016. US date not yet announced.
