Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (George MacKay) eats, sleeps, and lives like a wolf. He's sent to a clinic where he undergoes increasingly extreme forms of 'curative' therapies at the hands of The Zookeeper (Paddy Considine). 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?

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Despite George MacKay's best efforts, Wolf remains a horror-tinged social allegory that's left to largely chase its own tail.

Art house drama has mental and physical abuse, nudity.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wolf is an art house drama about species dysphoria, a real-life disorder in which people believe they're animals. It has adult themes, nudity, and distressing scenes, and the overall tone is dark (with occasional mild humor) and the pace fairly slow. Main character Jacob (George MacKay) is convinced that he's a wolf and is subsequently sent to a psychological facility to be treated. The treatment Jacob and the other patients receive is often abusive, both physically and mentally, and there's cruelty and violence. This includes characters being locked in a cage and poked with electric animal prods. There are a few instances of the word "f--k" in one scene, but no strong language elsewhere. Nudity and sexual touching are shown, with the implication of further sexual acts off-screen. Lily-Rose Depp co-stars.
