When Margot, a college sophomore (Emilia Jones, CODA), goes on a date with the older Robert (Nicholas Braun, Succession, ZOLA), 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 phone.

Susanna Fogel (The Flight Attendant, The Wilds) directs this genre-bending thriller about the horrors of dating in the 21st century, adapted by Michelle Ashford (Masters of Sex, The Pacific, OPERATION MINCEMEAT) from the acclaimed New Yorker short story (published in the winter of 2017) by Kristen Roupenian.

“A bold, stylish and dynamic adaptation that makes big choices…and the moral of the story is left up to us, which is perhaps the most daring move of all.” —Katie Walsh, The Wrap

“Susanna Fogel’s feature film version of the story is appropriately excruciating (this is a high compliment; mostly, it will set your teeth on edge and raise the hairs on the back of your neck, just as it should).” —Kate Erbland, IndieWire

“They’ve [director Susanna Fogel and screenwriter Michelle Ashford] given us a film that’s funny in places, horrifying in others and all but destined to be a reference point in future discussions about courtship.” —Peter Debruge, Variety
