Studiocanal has released a first look clip for their upcoming biopic, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.
Directed by Will Sharpe, the biopic follows artist Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch) as he introduces Victorian London to the delightful world of cats.
The artist Louis Wain is best known for his artworks featuring anthropomorphized large-eyed cats and kittens. In his later years, Wain suffered from schizophrenia. His wife Emily (Claire Foy), the love of his life, was one of his inspirations, as well as his love for the world.
The Electrical Life of Louis Wain is making its debut at Telluride with multiple other festival stops scheduled, including its Canadian premiere at TIFF. No exact wide release date is scheduled. However, it will release theatrically and on Amazon Prime Video later this year.
The cast also features Andrea Riseborough, Toby Jones, Adeel Akhtar, Julian Barratt, Asim Chaudhry, and Sophia Di Martino.
