“Acclaimed British writer-director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) delivers a dazzling genre-bending extravaganza in his latest film. Starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy and Matt Smith, this stunning psychological thriller delves deep into London’s seedy past, all the while paying homage to the Swinging Sixties. McKenzie is Ellie, an aspiring fashion designer with a mysterious ability who finds herself transported back in time to 1966 London in the body of Sandie (a stunning turn from Taylor-Joy), a talented night club singer. While in Sandie’s body, Ellie is seduced by smouldering lothario Jack, but she soon realises things aren’t quite as they seem when Sandie is coerced by her new beau into a life of depravity and exploitation… Wright digs deep into his own influences to give us one of his most daring films yet. As well as paying homage to Soho’s rich and vibrant history, he and co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns have also devised a commendably precise story about exploitation and abuse… This is a thrilling, gorgeously acted offering from a filmmaker who is at the top of his craft… Prepare to be charmed, horrified and genuinely startled.” – Linda Marric, The Jewish Chronicle
