The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

Louis Wain was many things during his incredible life: artist, inventor, entrepreneur and caretaker. After adopting a stray kitten, he went on to paint the extraordinary images of cats that made him world famous.

An eccentric artist (Benedict Cumberbatch) introduces Victorian London to the delights of cats, in Will Sharpe’s enlightening biopic.

From Ancient Egypt to TikTok, cats have accompanied humans on life’s journey. But who made the creatures cute? The Electrical Life of Louis Wain tells the story of the Victorian-era artist whose widely published drawings of anthropomorphized cats transformed them from mysterious to irresistible. In a dazzling, career-best performance, Benedict Cumberbatch plays one of Britain’s most influential eccentrics as a flurry of wild ideas and prodigious artistic output.

"An exceptionally sincere piece of filmmaking." - RogerEbert.com

"The century-old story feels fresh." - New York Post 

"The Electrical Life of Louis Wain stands heads and shoulders above the usual biopic, thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch's performance and a rather whimsical take on its source material." - EW 

"Sharpe's vision of Wain's story is much more whimsical in nature than the traditional biopic, including colorful and artfully composed scenes filmed by cinematographer Erik Wilson (Paddington 2) that blur the line between fantasy and reality." - The Wrap
