  • Description

Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy star in this true story of an eccentric artist

The true story of eccentric British artist Louis Wain, whose playful, psychedelic pictures transformed the public’s perception of cats forever. Set in the early 1900s, we follow Wain as he seeks to unlock the “electrical” mysteries of the world and, in so doing, to better understand his own life and the profound love he shared with his wife Emily Richardson

★★★★ It’s an affable biopic about a great but troubled man, with plenty of artistic spirit of its own Time Out
★★★★ A biopic that brings its subject to life in a way that’s both respectful and open-hearted. Time
★★★★ Cumberbatch fills in this expressionistic portrait exquisitely The New York Times
