Rialto Pictures has revealed the official trailer and poster for the psychological thriller Cat Person, adapted from the New Yorker article of the same name. The film stars Emilia Jones as Margot, Nicholas Braun as Robert, Geraldine Viswanathan, Isabella Rossellini, Fred Melamed, Liza Koshy, and Michael Gandolfini.
Cat Person premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 21, 2023, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 6, by Rialto Pictures.
Synopsis: When Margot, a college sophomore (Emilia Jones) goes on a date with the older Robert (Nicholas Braun), she finds that IRL Robert doesn’t live up to the Robert she has been flirting with over texts. Cat Person is a razor-sharp exploration of the gender divide, the quagmire of navigating modern dating dynamics, and the dangerous projections we make in our minds about the person at the other end of our phones…
Cat Person is directed by American filmmaker Susanna Fogel, director of the films Life Partners, and The Spy Who Dumped Me previously, plus TV series like “The Flight Attendant” and “The Wilds”.
The screenplay is written by Michelle Ashford. Adapted from the super famous short story written by Kristen Roupenian for New Yorker.
