by Susan Ryant

The typical boy-meets-girl setup undergoes a transformation in the upcoming Wolf from Focus Features, as the boy believes he’s a wolf and the girl, well, she’s a wildcat at heart.

Nathalie Biancheri (Nocturnal) directed Wolf, releasing domestically on December 3.

Watch the official trailer below, promising a highly unique love story.

In the film, “Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (George MacKay) eats, sleeps, and lives like a wolf – much to the shock of his family.

“When he’s sent to a clinic, Jacob and his animal-bound peers are forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of ‘curative’ therapies. However once he meets the mysterious Wildcat (Lily-Rose Depp), and as their friendship blossoms into an undeniable infatuation, Jacob is faced with a challenge: will he renounce his true self for love.”

Wolf is written and directed by Nathalie Biancheri, produced by Jessie Fisk and Jane Doolan, and co-produced by Mariusz Wlodarski and Agnieszka Wasiak. MacKay and Depp are joined by a talented ensemble including Senan Jennings, Darragh Shannon, Elisa Fionuir, Lola Petticrew, Amy Macken, Fionn O’Shea, Paddy Considine, Karise Yansen and Eileen Walsh.
