Here’s the Cat Person first look photos a film about when Margot (Emilia Jones), a college sophomore goes on a date with the older Robert (Nicholas Braun), she finds that IRL Robert doesn’t live up to the Robert she has been flirting with over texts. CAT PERSON is a razor-sharp exploration of the gender divide, the quagmire of navigating modern dating and the dangerous projections we make in our minds about the person at the other end of our phones.
Adapted by Michelle Ashford (Masters of Sex, The Pacific, Operation Mincemeat – watch the cast premiere HERE) from The New Yorker’s acclaimed short story by Kristen Roupenian. The film stars Emilia Jones (CODA), Nicholas Braun (Succession, Zola), Geraldine Viswanathan (Untitled Ethan Coen Project, The Beanie Bubble, The Broken Hearts Gallery), Hope Davis (Your Honor), Fred Melamed (A Serious Man), Liza Koshy (Liza on Demand), Michael Gandolfini (The Many Saints of Newark) and Isabella Rossellini (Joy).
The film is directed by Susanna Fogel who wrote the excellent BookSmart and the comedy The Spy who Dumped Me (reviewed HERE) so this should be prove interesting to see if that success will continue into directing – we hope so and the premise looks ideal for a social media obsessed age.
