“The man responsible for some of Victorian England's most beloved feline paintings led rather an interesting life. This odd biopic features an adorably awkward Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, and plays a lot like Tim Burton’s Big Eyes as quirky style-phile Wes Anderson might have directed it.” - Variety
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 profoundlove he shared with his wife Emily Richardson (Claire Foy).
