Tom Hiddleston stars as Laing, a surgeon who moves into a tower on the outskirts of London. The Brutalist brainchild of architect Royal, it offers residents everything they need – except contact with the outside world.
When the concrete monolith’s electrical circuits malfunction, so does the moral compass of everyone inside. Decadence and depravity become the new norm. Fighting and fornication are rampant and warfare between lower and upper floors erupts, while murder barely raises an eyebrow.
Amidst the chaos, Wheatley and screenwriter Amy Jump hammer home Ballard’s stinging socio-political satire about the thin line between human advancement and de-evolution of the species.
