 Manchester Film Festival have now official announced the opening night film of the 2022 edition of the festival.

WOLF, directed by Nathalie Biancheri and starring George MacKay, Lily-Rose Depp and Paddy Considine, will screen on Saturday 12th Marchat the Odeon, Great Northern.

After earning rave reviews following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Manchester Film Festival will host the film’s U.K. Premiere.

Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (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 (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 opens the Manchester Film Festival on Saturday 12th March at 7PM.
