Will Sharpe’s captivating biographical comedy-drama tells the extraordinary story of eccentric artist Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch). When the unconventional, lively, and brilliant, Louis Wain is hired as a newspaper illustrator by Sir William Ingram (Toby Jones), his playful psychedelic drawings will change Victorian London’s perception of cats forever. Yet it is his sisters’ new governess, Emily Richardson (Claire Foy), who will illuminate his own life in a way even he could never have imagined.
Filled with brilliant performances and a witty narration, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain is as surreal, colourful, and dynamic as the infamous cat illustrations.
