About Last Night in Soho
As assumed from the trailer, Last Night in Soho centers on a young, aspiring fashion designer named Eloise, and her idol Sandy, who is an enthralling wannabe singer of the 90’s. Eloise possesses mysterious ability to dream herself into the past, where she meets Sandy. However, as the time-travel always comes with consequences, Eloise doesn’t just meet her ideal, but she seems to be a passenger in Sandy’s body. Hence, what happens to Sandy happens to Eloise too. And, that is when this dreamy, time-hopping adventure turns sinister.
Furthermore, Last night in Soho also comprises of an A-list cast, with the Queen Gambit’s Golden Globe Award winner Anya Taylor Joy portraying the ethereal 1960’s diva Sandy. Other than that, the Leave No Trace and Jojo Rabbit rising star Thomasin McKenzie has embraced the character of Eloise, whereas Doctor Who star Matt Smith, Shadow and Bone’s Jessie Mei Li, and Terence Stamp will be seen in pivotal roles.
In addition to this, the approaching thriller will also mark the final film appearances for Diana Rigg and Margaret Nolan.
The official synopsis for Last night in Soho reads,
“Eloise, a young woman with a passion for fashion design and a strange sixth sense, mysteriously finds herself transported back in time to 1966 in London. In the body of a singer named Sandy, she encounters her idol, a wannabe vocalist, but the 1960s London is not as it appears to be and the past and present seem to fall apart with shady and horrifying consequences.”
Talking about his impending horror adventure, Director and writer Edger Wright stated, “It will feel very different to my other films, but I’ve always liked films which have a slow burn into something else, and a lot of my movies have that feeling. Last Night starts in a more psychological realm and then starts to get increasingly intense as it goes along. And I always like to gravitate towards making a film in genres I miss, and there’s a certain type of psychological horror film that you got more in the ’60s and ’70s, that have something of an operatic nature. I’m using that kind of visual grammar.”
Last Night in Soho is slated to be released on October 22, 2021, by Focus Features in the United States and by Universal Pictures in other countries.
