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. 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.

"Brims with passion and integrity. I’m grateful that it exists."

— Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films

"A dreamy movie that evokes O’Connor’s biggest project: an inquiry into the broken nature of grace."

— Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

"Wildcat understands that the two-way process between artist and art is beyond classification, and has no beginning or end."

— Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

"It’s a soulful, pointed and unconventional grappling with the mysteries of the deeply Catholic, norm-shattering Georgia native’s life and work."

— Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

"It’s the seriousness of its ambitions and the intellectual heft of its engagement with its subject that makes this under-the-radar entry a must-see."

— Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"'Wildcat' shows that his [Hawke] gifts in front of the camera are being complemented behind it, too, especially when the subject is a life woven through with art, passion and pain."

— Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

"In the hands of such passionate talents, 'Wildcat' becomes a curious and purposeful project that goes beyond the guidelines of traditional 'biopics' to try to give life to O'Connor's most intimate thoughts."

— Sergio Burstein, Los Angeles Times

"Hawke has profiled artists before in directorial efforts ... but this feels like his most ambitious drama, a movie that doesn’t just hit events in the life of its subject but digs deep into what influenced their work."

— Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

"O’Connor’s personality and the filmmakers’ attentiveness to detail make this oddball character study worthwhile for literati looking for new angles from which to make observations about perennial subjects for biographical analyses."

— Todd McCarthy, Deadline Hollywood Daily
