Edgar Wright is directing the psychological horror film Last Night in Soho, which is set to be released in 2021 in the United Kingdom. Krysty Wilson-Cairns and Wright collaborated on the screenplay. Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith, Michael Ajao, Terence Stamp, and Diana Rigg are among the actors featured in this production. Rigg and Margaret Nolan, who both passed away in 2020, will feature in their last picture together in this production. The movie is a tribute to the lives of Rigg and Nolan, who both passed away.
It had its world premiere on September 4, 2021, at the 78th Venice International Film Festival. On October 9, 2021, it had its premiere in the United Kingdom at the BFI London Film Festival. Universal Pictures and Focus Features, respectively, were released in theatres in the United Kingdom and the United States on October 29, 2021.
It was given mostly positive reviews by critics, who complimented its production design, photography, costume design, directing, and performances, but some criticism was leveled at its screenplay. Despite this, the movie was a financial failure at the box office, earning only $23 million worldwide on a budget of $43 million. The movie received two nominations for the BAFTA Film Awards, one of which was for Outstanding British Film, and the other was for Best Sound.

The Plot of Last Night in Soho
Eloise, a young woman with dreams of becoming a fashion designer, has some unexplained ability to travel back in time to the 1960s, where she meets Sandie, a dazzling young woman with aspirations of becoming a singer. This occurs in the psychological thriller that was directed by the acclaimed filmmaker Edgar Wright. However, the glitz is not all that it seems to be, and the visions of the past begin to fracture and splinter into something that is much more sinister.
Eloise Turner, sometimes known as Ellie, is a girl who adores the music and clothes of the Swinging Sixties and has aspirations of working in the fashion industry. When Ellie was a little child, her mother, who was also an artist and designer, took her own life. Ellie has reported having ghostly encounters with her mother in mirrors on occasion.
After that, she makes the decision to relocate to London to attend the London College of Fashion, where she finds it challenging to integrate. She decided that the residence hall was not the right environment for her, so she moved into a studio. At this point, she begins to experience very clear dreams about a nightclub in Soho that was popular in the 1960s. Is the life she leads when she’s awake different from the life she supposedly lives in her dreams?

For one thing, each of Wright’s previous films has had an inexplicable lightness to them, which has nothing to do with the speed at which the camera moves, and everything to do with the twinkling, knowing playfulness that they exude. This makes it even more puzzling as to why this one is so different. However, this two-hour slumber party in Soho is a noisy gloomy snoozefest.
