Focus Features will release the Irish drama Wolf starring George MacKay and Lily-Rose Depp in domestic theaters on Friday, December 3, 2021.
Wolf is written and directed by Nathalie Biancheri (Nocturnal); and also stars Senan Jennings, Darragh Shannon, Elisa Fionuir, Lola Petticrew, Amy Macken, Fionn O’Shea, Paddy Considine, Karise Yansen along with Eileen Walsh.
In the film, Jacob [George MacKay], a man who believes he is a Wolf trapped in a human body, is sent to a clinic by his family where he is forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of “curative” therapies at the hands of The Zookeeper [Paddy Considine]. Jacob’s only solace is the enigmatic Wildcat [Lily-Rose Depp] with whom he roams the hospital in the dead of night. The two form an improbable friendship that develops into infatuation. But can he renounce his true self for love, and will he ever be able to deny the being inside?
