The Electrical Life of Louis Wain starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy has an official trailer!
“Louis Wain was many things during his incredible life: artist, inventor, entrepreneur, trying his best to care for his five sisters and mother. Two events changed his life forever: meeting Emily, the love of his life, and adopting Peter, a stray kitten. They will become both his family and his inspiration to paint the extraordinary images of cats that made him world famous and changed the way we see life forever.”
Louis Wain is an artist 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.
Directed by Will Sharpe, the cast also features Andrea Riseborough, Toby Jones, Adeel Akhtar, Julian Barratt, Asim Chaudhry, and Sophia Di Martino.
The film has no official release date but is expected later this year on Amazon Prime Video.
