What is Wildcat about?

“Directed and co-written by four-time Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke, Wildcat invites the audience to weave in and out of celebrated Southern Gothic writer Flannery O’Connor’s mind as she ponders the great questions of her writing: Can scandalous art still serve God? Does suffering precede all greatness? Can illness be a blessing? In 1950, Flannery (Maya Hawke) visits her mother Regina (Laura Linney) in Georgia when she is diagnosed with lupus at twenty-four years old,” the official synopsis reads. “Struggling with the same disease that took her father’s life when she was a child and desperate to make her mark as a great writer, this crisis pitches her imagination into a feverish exploration of belief. As she dives deeper into her craft, the lines between reality, imagination, and faith begin to blur, allowing Flannery to ultimately come to peace with her situation and heal a strained relationship with her mother.”

In addition to Maya Hawke and Linney, Wildcat stars Philip Ettinger, Rafael Casal, Cooper Hoffman, Steve Zahn, Vincent D’Onofrio, Alessandro Nivola, Christine Dye, Willa Fitzgerald, and Levon Hawke.

Ethan Hawke co-wrote the screenplay for Wildcat with Shelby Gaines. He also produces the movie alongside Ryan Hawke, Joe Goodman, Cory Pyke, and Karri O’Reilly.

Having premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in September 2023, Wildcat releases in New York City and Los Angeles theaters on May 3, 2024, with a wide release to come in the following weeks.
