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, a 24-year-old Flannery (Maya Hawke) is diagnosed with lupus and visits her mother Regina (Laura Linney) in Georgia. 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 Flannery's 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 her to ultimately come to peace with her situation and heal a strained relationship with her mother.
