If you could go back in time, would you? Should you? The past is another country, they say. One whose borders are locked. But what if that wasn’t entirely true? What if you could experience another time for yourself, in full sensory overload?
That’s the situation for Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie, Jojo Rabbit, Old) in Wright’s new psychological thriller. A newly-minted fashion student who has just arrived in the Big Smoke of London to start her future, but Eloise is obsessed with the past – longing for a bygone age, desperate to have experienced ’60s London in all its glory.
However, Eloise’s uncanny psychic gift means that she may get the chance more literally than she realizes.
Moving into her drab student halls, Eloise is immediately intimidated by her glittering roommate Jocasta and Jocasta’s fashion-forward friends. Despite the attempts of her friendlier classmate John to encourage her, Eloise can’t stand the all-night parties.
Instead, she finds a room for rent at the top of an old house owned by landlady Ms Collins. It’s there, still unsettled yet hopeful for a new start, that Eloise slips away into dreams of the 1960s.
But are her night-time visions only dreams? Eloise finds herself inhabiting the life of Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy, Emma, The Queen’s Gambit), a 1960s starlet in the making, as she sashays into the Café De Paris. Sandie is a wannabe singer, dancer, actress, star – and she’s dead set on making an impression.
All of Sandie’s dreams seem to come true as she meets the charming Jack, a manager who might be able to introduce her to the right people to help launch her career – and Eloise is pulled along with her on an intoxicating adventure of first love, bright lights and big dreams.
Eloise immediately adopts Sandie as her role model and guiding spirit, dyeing her hair to look more like her heroine and living for the nights when she can re-join the past in her dreams. But when Sandie’s life takes a turn for the darker, Eloise threatens to spin off right alongside her.
Those ’60s dreams are now full of darkness; a darkness that seems to spill over into Eloise’s everyday existence as Sandie’s troubles become a weight around Eloise’s neck. Is there a way to change the past and save Sandie? Can Eloise solve a decades old mystery before she too is put in danger?
Directed by Edgar Wright, the film also stars Matt Smith (The Crown, Doctor Who), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block, Silent Witness), Terence Stamp, Diana Rigg, Rita Tushingham, and Synnøve Karlsen. The film was co-written by Edgar Wright and Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917).
