The 19th century-set movie follows the life of the critically-acclaimed painter, whose work was inspired by his penchant for feline animals, as well as his partner Emily, played by Claire Foy. 

Louis Wain is directed by Will Sharpe, and also stars the likes of Nymphomaniac actress Stacy Martin and Daniel Blake’s Hayley Squires. 

The sketcher was famed for his drawings of cats and kittens and was thought to have suffered schizophrenia in the later part of his life.
