Cat Person (2/2/24 D: Susanna Fogel) S: Emilia Jones, Nicholas Braun, Geraldine Viswanathan (HULU)



When Margot, a college sophomore goes on a date with the older Robert, she finds that IRL Robert doesn't live up to the Robert she has been flirting with over texts. A razor-sharp exploration of the horrors of dating.

I saw this during Sundance last year. I liked it up until a point... then it goes way over the top. Cousin Greg gets creepy AF. I suspect most here won't care for it.

I'm curious about the Hulu promotion aspect of this... It did not sell to Hulu last year. The producers turned down streamers because they wanted to sell to a distributor who would guarantee theatrical... Rialto bought it and it made no money theatrically when they releasd it last year.
It has been available digitally and Hoopla for a while.

Yeah, I caught this a couple months ago. It dilutes the power of the short story in annoying ways, namely the protracted and ridiculous ending. Seemed well cast for what it was, but overall very forgettable. Read the story!

Well, one man. And by projection, a certain kind of man? But the movie kinda turns the whole concept inside out.

Zipped in here hoping this was another Cat People remake.

I was looking for something to watch tonight and came across this on Hulu. Thought it was decent to start but it got super frustrating after a while. Margot just kept on making the dumbest choices. Had she just blocked his number and avoided him things would have been fine.

Maybe the ending was great but I liked everything that came before it and did not think Robert was a bad guy but misunderstood.
