Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Prime Video’s The Electrical Life of Louis Wain in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with writer/director Will Sharpe, moderated by Dave Karger (Host, Turner Classic Movies), is included as part of this screening experience.

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, better understand his own life and the profound love he shared with his wife Emily Richardson (Claire Foy).

From Amazon Prime Video, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain will be available to stream November 5.
