All of Us Strangers Plot
The film’s premise differs significantly from the book’s, but it follows Scott’s character, screenwriter Adam, as he retraces his life after a chance meeting with Mescal’s character, strange neighbor Harry, in his London towerblock on a night.
Adam finds two individuals living in his old home who resemble his parents—portrayed by Claire Foy of The Crown and Jamie Bell of Rocketman—who passed away more than thirty years ago—as the two of them get closer. Adam finds himself uncovering elements of his history that he thought he could keep hidden when he starts to write about his parents, who passed away when he was twelve years old.
