Starring: Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Jamie Bell, Claire Foy
Romantic supernatural fantasy drama written and directed by Andrew Haigh. All of Us Strangers (2023) centers on Adam (Andrew Scott) who one night, in his tower block in contemporary London, has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbor, Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, thirty years before.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Harry: I saw you looking at me from the street. I’ve seen you a bunch of times, coming and going with your head down.
Harry: [to Adam] I’m assuming you’re not with anyone, I never see you with anyone.
Harry: [referring to the photo] This your mum and dad?
Adam: Yeah. They died just before I was twelve. It was a long time ago.
Harry: I don’t think that matters. I can’t even begin to imagine how lonely you must have been.
Adam: [referring to his parents] I’m trying to write about them at the moment.
Harry: How’s it going?
Dad: Our boy’s back home.
Mum: Our son.
Adam: Is this real?
Mum: Does it feel real?
Mum: There you go then.
Mum: [to Adam] Look at you. You were just a boy, and now you’re not.
Mum: Have you got a girlfriend?
Adam: I’m gay.
Mum: Must admit, I’m a bit surprised. I’m not really sure what I feel about it.
Harry: I’ve always felt like a stranger in my own family.
Adam: It’s funny, it doesn’t take much to make you feel the way you felt back there again.
Mum: [to Adam] You were always scared of something. Always running away, do you remember?
Dad: [to Adam] I’m sorry I never came in your room when you were crying.
Adam: No, really, it’s okay, Dad. I get it. It was so long ago.
Dad: Can I hug you now? Alright, son.
Dad: [to Adam] You think you’d like to be in love with him?
Harry: Been thinking about you all week today. I was thinking about watching crappy TV with you on a Friday night. Eating takeaway on the sofa.
Adam: I’d always felt alone. This is a new feeling.
Adam: I want to go out. You and me, together, into the world.
Mum: [to Adam] You promise me that you are going to try with this Harry boy. I hope you make each other a bit happier.
Adam: [to Harry] I was too scared to let you in. But I’m here with you.
