‘Wolf’ Trailer: George MacKay And Lily-Rose Depp Have An Animal Attraction

To the best of my knowledge, there is no such thing as “species identity disorder”, which finds people who believe themselves to be an entirely different species, like an animal. But perhaps there will be once people see it depicted by the gorgeous duo of Lily-Rose Depp and George MacKay in Wolf.

MacKay, who is best known for starring in 1917, plays a man who belives he is a wolf, going so far as to eat, sleep, and live like one. While at a mental health clinic he meets a woman, played by Voyagers‘ Rose-Depp, who thinks she is a wildcat. Their animal urges for one another are complicated by the differences between their species.

Yeah, this shit is weird.

Also in the cast are Paddy Considine and Eileen Walsh. The film was written and directed by Nathalie Biancheri (Nocturnal), and recently premiered at TIFF.

Wolf opens in theaters on December 3rd.

Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (George MacKay) eats, sleeps, and lives like a wolf – much to the shock of his family. When he’s sent to a clinic, Jacob and his animal-bound peers are forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of ‘curative’ therapies. However once he meets the mysterious Wildcat (Lily-Rose Depp), and as their friendship blossoms into an undeniable infatuation, Jacob is faced with a challenge: will he renounce his true self for love.
