Fri 7 – Thu 20 Jan

"★★★★★ – Benedict Cumberbatch gives his best performance yet in this sensitive portrayal of the troubled Victorian artist" – Independent

“A strange and unexpectedly affecting portrait...” – Variety

"Wonderfully peculiar" – Mirror

★★★★ – Time Out

Will Sharpe’s unconventional biopic is a whimsical journey through the life of eccentric British artist Louis Wain – a man whose quirky, psychedelic paintings singlehandedly altered the public’s perception of cats forever.

Gorgeous visuals and electrifying performances, from Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, The Power of the Dog) as Wain and Claire Foy (First Man) as his wife, combine to create a sincere and poignant film with a big heart.
