High-Rise Blu-ray Review

Reviewed by Allie Schembra
High-Rise stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Golden Globe® nominee Sienna Miller, American Sniper), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Luke Evans, Beauty and the Beast), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”); and Mr. Royal (Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), the enigmatic architect who designed the building. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.
