The extraordinary true story of eccentric British artist, Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose playful, sometimes even psychedelic pictures helped to transform the public’s perception of cats forever. Moving from the late 1800s through to the 1930s, we follow the incredible adventures of this inspiring, unsung hero, 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 (Claire Foy).
The clip debut offers audiences a first glimpse of Academy Award® Nominee and BAFTA-winning Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Patrick Melrose, The Imitation Game) as forgotten British artist, Louis Wain, in the extraordinary true story of a brilliant but troubled soul, whose fascination with the mysteries of the world is both complicated and deepened, when he meets the love of his life, Emily, played by Emmy® Winner and BAFTA Nominee Claire Foy (The Crown, First Man).
Amazon Studios will release the film theatrically and on Prime Video later this year, with STUDIOCANAL releasing the film in-cinemas across their territories – Ireland / UK, France, Germany, Australia & New Zealand early in 2022.
