Directed by Alistair Banks Griffin, The Wolf Hour had its World Premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and is now on general cinema release in the United States.
With Production Design by Kaet McAnneny, The Wolf Hour features Naomi Watts (The Impossible, King Kong, Mulholland Drive), Brennan Brown (Focus, State of Play, I Love You Phillip Morris) and Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty, A Quiet Passion, Pride & Prejudice).
The Wolf Hour follows the life of June (Watts) who was a once a known counter-culture figure, but that was a decade ago. She now lives alone in her South Bronx apartment, having all but cut herself off from the outside world. It’s the notorious “Summer of Sam” and June only has to look out of her window to see the violence escalating with the brutal summer heat. The city is on a knife’s edge, a pressure-cooker about to explode into the incendiary 1977 New York blackout riots.
