One night, in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbour, Harry, 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, appear to be living just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before.
He was born in Harrogate (England) in 1973. In 2009 he directed his first feature, ‘Greek Pete’, which premiered at the London Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and won the artistic merit award at Outfest. With ‘Weekend’ (2011) he won the audience award at the SXSW Film Festival, beginning a brilliant career that included two British Independent Film Awards and the London Film Critics Award for best new director. His third film, ‘45 Years’, earned him the Silver Bear, the European Film Award and the award for best actress at Seminci for its protagonist, Charlotte Rampling, who was also nominated for an Oscar. He has directed episodes for series such as ‘Looking’, ‘The OA’ or ‘The North Water’, and after ‘Lean on Pete’ (2017) premiered in Venice, ‘All of Us Strangers’ (2023) had its world premiere in Telluride.
