The team behind LAST NIGHT IN SOHO in conversation with TIFF in advance of its premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. Edgar Wright wickedly reflects ’60s Swinging London in this kaleidoscopic psycho-thriller about two young artists entwined across time. The 46th Toronto International Film Festival runs September 9 to 18, 2021. For more, visit http://tiff.net.

With their spectacular precision and visual wit, Edgar Wright’s movies — from SHAUN OF THE DEAD to BABY DRIVER — have been embraced by genre fans, arthouse cinephiles, and popcorn moviegoers alike. He has a singular talent for generating pure joy in the cinema. LAST NIGHT IN SOHO crafts a delicious new flavour from surprising ingredients: the pop thrills of 1960s Swinging London, the darker pleasures of psychological horror, and a very contemporary story of a young woman defining who she aims to be in the world. Writing with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917), Wright draws us into the orbit of Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie), a 1960s-obsessed young woman who ventures from the English countryside to study fashion at a prestigious London academy. Ostracized by her school’s chic cliques, Eloise retreats from her dormitory to a rented flat in Soho, where her life becomes psychically intertwined with that of Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy), a singer living in 1966. Matt Smith (The Crown) turns up as Jack, a smooth night owl promising to help Sandy achieve stardom. But as Sandy’s descent into the demimonde and Eloise’s nocturnal wanderings intensify, overlapping traumas turn both present and past into a vivid swirl of danger.

Drawing from the psychotronic cinema of the 1960s and ’70s, and cleverly featuring appearances from actual ’60s icons such as Dame Diana Rigg, Margaret Nolan — both in their final roles — Terence Stamp, and Rita Tushingham, Wright’s first full-on foray into horror is a dazzling and dizzying thriller.

Edgar Wright was born and raised in Dorset, England. His early work includes feature debut A Fistful of Fingers (95) and the television comedies Asylum (96) and Spaced (99–01). His many films include Shaun of the Dead (04), Hot Fuzz (07), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (10), The World’s End (13), Baby Driver (17), documentary The Sparks Brothers (21), and Last Night in Soho (21).
