Last Night in Soho

A young woman is transported back to the 1960s in acclaimed director Edgar Wright’s (Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead) time-travelling psychological thriller, Last Night in Soho

For sweet-natured, 1960s-obsessed Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie, Jojo Rabbit), dreams really do come true when she gets accepted into fashion school in the bustling heart of London’s West End. But the big city proves a rude awakening for this small-town girl and when her rowdy student halls become too much for her, she rents an attic room from the matriarchal Miss Collins (Diana Rigg, in her final film role).

One night, Eloise finds herself inexplicably transported back to the 1960s where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer named Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Queen's Gambit, Emma). But the glamour of swinging 60s London is not all it appears to be and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something far darker.

Featuring a tremendous ensemble cast including Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown), James Phelps (The Harry Potter series) and Terence Stamp, Edgar Wright’s genre-hopping marvel is a joyous (and often darkly violent) love letter to the nation’s capital.
