Obviously I'm missing something: I thought that the movie is still set
in Britain but that **Will** had been changed to being American to
emphasise his isolation?

Certainly most of the adult supporting cast I've seen are British: Ian
McShane, Chris Eccleston, etc. Wikipedia[1] supports me: "Stanton was
also written to be American so he would be established as more of an
outsider, culturally alien to the story's English setting"[2]
