Cat Person

1h 58m Drama, Thriller 2023

Susanna Fogel directs this genre-bending thriller about the dangers of dating in the 21st Century, adapted from the acclaimed New Yorker short story by Kristen Roupenian.

When Margot, a college sophomore (Emilia Jones ) goes on a date with the older Robert (Nicholas Braun, Succession), 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 and the dangerous projections we make in our minds about the person at the other end of our phones.

“It’s still worthwhile to consider the post-#MeToo ideas that Cat Person throws at the wall around notions like empathy, consent, and the vitality of crystal-clear communication and see what sticks. What you will end up with might look like a messy artifact, but one that will at least rattle in ways both witty and provocative.” ~Tomris Laffly, The Playlist

“A hair-raising third act adds an unusual coda — one that I, after only one viewing, am still processing. The relief, however, is in the filmmakers’ approach to these tense scenes: Fogel and Ashford loosen their grip, at last trusting us to sit in our discomfort, draw our own conclusions and sharpen our tools for the discourse.” ~Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter
