All of Us Strangers (2023)

A poignant drama directed by Andrew Haigh, this film delves into themes of grief, identity, and unexpected connections. The story revolves around Adam (played by Andrew Scott), a solitary screenwriter living in a nearly empty East London apartment building. His life takes an unexpected turn when he forms a relationship with his mysterious neighbour, Harry (portrayed by Paul Mescal).

As Adam opens up to Harry, he reveals his past struggles with sexuality and the loss of his parents. The catch? Adam’s parents died in a car crash when he was just twelve years old. Despite this, Adam decides to take Harry to meet his late parents at their childhood home in Sussex.

In a powerful twist, Harry does indeed see Adam’s parents through the backdoor window. This encounter prompts Harry to flee, leaving Adam alone with his memories. In a poignant scene, Adam bids farewell to his parents in a diner, their presence still haunting him.

Returning to his apartment block, Adam heads to Harry’s apartment for the first time. To his shock, he finds the door open and the television displaying static. Investigating further, he discovers Harry’s decomposing body, clutching a bottle of whiskey—the same one Harry had brought during their initial encounter.

“All of Us Strangers” masterfully explores love, loss, and the fragile boundaries between life and death. It’s a haunting reminder that even in solitude, unexpected connections can alter our existence forever.
