Cat Person

Cat Person

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere
Based on the most widely read short story ever published in the New Yorker, Cat Person apprehensively captures the pulse of the times and cunningly navigates the dark corner of dating, where unequal power dynamics slowly surface, and toxic masculinity seeks to disguise its true nature until the very end. Emilia Jones, the Oscar-nominated star of Coda, takes on the tailor-made role of Margot, a twenty-year-old student who will come to regret the moment she decided to give a chance to socially awkward but seemingly harmless Robert, who, after all, is “a cat person.” A film that’s set to ignite discussions, turning the conventions of romantic comedy on their head, and deemed (un)suitable only for those preparing for a first date.
