The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (2021, D: Sharpe) S: Cumberbatch, Foy



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 Electrical Life of Louis Wain arrives to US theaters October 22 and Prime Video US on November 5.

Awesome.

Hopefully this doesn't continue the apocryphal non-sense that's plagued his career.

Apparently Nick Cave (who at one time owned a ton of Wain’s art) has a small role in this as HG Wells.

I think there’s a law that says if an English period piece is being made, Toby Jones must have a role.

Watched this Saturday and thought it was great. I never heard of Louis Wain before this, but Cumberbatch plays a quirky eccentric very well.
