George MacKay Believes He is a Wolf in First Trailer for 'Wolf' Movie
"Life is no fairy tale… Is it?" Focus Features has released an official trailer for the film titled Wolf, which recently premiered at the 2021 Toronto Film Festival at the end of the fest. This is the "high concept" drama starring the very talented actor George MacKay as a boy who believes he is a wolf. When he is sent to a clinic, Jacob and his animal-bound peers are "forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of 'curative' therapies." However, once he meets the mysterious Wildcat, everything changes. Lily-Rose Depp stars as "Wildcat", with a cast including Paddy Considine, Martin McCann, Terry Notary, Fionn O'Shea, Eileen Walsh, Lola Petticrew, and Senan Jennings. When this premiered at TIFF, they didn't allow it to be screened for press, for better or worse. I'm definitely curious! MacKay is a tremendously talented actor and maybe he's doing something incredible taking on this tricky role. I just hope the rest of the film is good.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Nathalie Biancheri's Wolf, direct from YouTube:
Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (George MacKay) eats, sleeps, and lives like a wolf – much to the shock of his family. When he's sent to a clinic, Jacob and his animal-bound peers are forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of 'curative' therapies. However, once he meets the mysterious Wildcat (Lily-Rose Depp), and as their friendship blossoms into an undeniable infatuation, Jacob is faced with a challenge: will he renounce his true self for love. Wolf is written and directed by the up-and-coming filmmaker Nathalie Biancheri, director of the film Nocturnal, and the doc I Was Here previously, as well as a few other shorts. Produced by Jane Doolan and Jessie Fisk. This just premiered at the 2021 Toronto Film Festival this fall, premiering at the end of the festival. Focus Features will debut Biancheri's Wolf in select US theaters starting on December 3rd, 2021 later this year. First impression? Anyone interested?
