We’ve been waiting a long time for Will Sharpe‘s The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain to be released in the UK. That day is only 4 weeks away and today Studiocanal have released a new second 60 second UK Trailer. If you love cats this new trailer will be irresistible!
Benedict Cumberbatch plays our titular character Louis Wain, a brilliant but troubled soul. An unknown artist until now who could transform anthropomorphized cats into wonderful or even unique pieces of art.
Our reviews editor Scott J.Davis watched the film at Toronto Film Festival earlier this year. He described it “if you’re a cat lover, be warned: Peter, the black and white stray who starts his career, will turn your heart into adoring mush“.
I recently watched the film too, it was surreal, quirky film that will make you smile, sad then smile again!
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 cast also includes Claire Foy, Sophia Di Martino, Olivia Colman narrating, Andrea Riseborough, Jamie Demetriou, Richard Ayaode, Asim Chaudry, Toby Jones, Nick Cave, Takia Waititi and Stacy Martin.
The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain will be released in UK and Irish Cinemas on 1st January 2022. If you are in the U.S you can watch it now on Amazon Prime Video.
