The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (2022, PG-13) Dir. Will Sharpe. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Claire Foy, Toby Jones.
The true story of the eccentric British ‘Cat Artist’ Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose playful, psychedelic pictures transformed the public’s perception of cats forever. Set in the early 1900s, it follows Wain 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). Selected by James Paddock to accompany the exhibition.
