Felicity Beckett talks to director Will Sharpe about his new film, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain.
After his father's death, Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game) is left alone to look after his five sisters and his mother.
Three things set him on a more colourful path: he's offered a job as an illustrator by a prestigious magazine editor, he meets and falls in love with his sisters' new governess (Claire Foy), and the pair of them adopt a stray cat they name Peter, whose presence inspires him to take a new and extraordinary artistic turn.
