One of the most anticipated films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was “Cat Person,” Kristen Roupenian’s New York adaptation of the viral story of the same name. The Jan. 21 world premiere left the Eccles Theater audience squealing and laughing with this dark look at modern dating.
Directed by Susanna Fogel from a screenplay by Michelle Ashford, “Cat Person” stars “Coda” star Emilia Jones and “Succession” favorite Nicholas Braun as a new couple in the lives of the which get tangled up in the middle of many red flags and communication problems. Told from the point of view of Jones’ savvy college student, Margot, her relationship with the elderly Robert (Braun) begins strained because, despite their mutual attraction, their communication styles don’t match. But as their romance progresses, the film touches on contemporary discussions such as the changing nature of consent and honesty in relationships.
