From the reunited director, writer, and stars of Forrest Gump, Here is an original film about multiple families and a special place they inhabit. The story travels through generations, capturing the human experience in its purest form. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, screenplay by Eric Roth & Zemeckis and told much in the style of the acclaimed graphic novel by Richard McGuire on which it is based, Tom Hanks and Robin Wright star in a tale of love, loss, laughter and life, all of which happen right Here.

The film stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Paul Bettany, Kelly Reilly, David Fynn, Ophelia Lovibond and Michelle Dockery.

The camera never moves from a fixed position inside a home for the entire 104-minute runtime, as the viewers are treated to the stories of the people who made a home there. The central couple is played by Hanks and Wright.

“The single perspective never changes, but everything around it does,” Robert Zemeckis recently told Vanity Fair about the ambitious storytelling conceit. “It’s actually never been done before. There are similar scenes in very early silent movies, before the language of montage was invented. But other than that, yeah, it was a risky venture.”

“That’s the excitement of it,” Zemeckis added. “What passes by this view of the universe? I think it’s an interesting way to do a meditation on mortality. It taps into the universal theme that everything passes.”

Other characters that appear inside the home in “Here” over the decades are Richard’s parents, Al (Paul Bettany) and Rose (Kelly Reilly), a couple at the turn of the 20th century (Michelle Dockery and Gwilym Lee) and an inventor and a pin-up model during the 1920s (David Fynn and Ophelia Lovibond), among others.

Here hits cinemas on 15 November 2024.
