CINEMA: The Electrical Life of Louis Wain
Tuesday 29th March, 2022 - 20:00€7 – €9
(please note new screening date – Tuesday 29 March)
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).
Directed by BAFTA Winner Will Sharpe Cumberbatch and Foy share a palpable chemistry, displaying the couples deep love without overplaying it.Showing Wains psychosis from the inside this is a charming and sorrowful delight of a film.
