Mescal and Scott are not the only acclaimed actors featured in the film: also starring are Claire Foy (The Crown, Women Talking) and Jamie Bell (Rocketman, Billy Elliot) as Scott's parents.
The official synopsis for the film reads: "One night in his empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Scott) has a chance encounter with his neighbor Harry (Mescal) that punctures the rhythms of his everyday life. As Adam and Harry get closer, Adam is pulled back to his childhood home where it appears his long-dead parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell) are both living and look the same age as the day they died 30 years before."
Maynooth-born Paul Mescal has quickly become one of the biggest actors in the world, receiving massive acclaim for his performance in Sally Rooney's Normal People (2020). Now fresh off an Oscar nomination for his performance as a troubled father in Aftersun (2022), the actor is also set to play the lead role in Ridley Scott's Gladiator sequel.
Scott has also seen massive success, both on screen and stage. He received various nominations for both his role as the priest in Fleabag and his role in Black Mirror. Raised in Dublin, Scott identifies as gay, and has proudly starred in various queer-themed films throughout his career, including the 2014 movie Pride.
All of Us Strangers is set to release in theaters on December 22, 2023.
