While on the surface, it’s simple to brush this film off as nothing more than people who suffer from severe mental illness, I believe there is so much more to it than that. I had a chance to chat with the stars of Wolf, George MacKay (1917), and Lily-Rose Depp (Voyagers), about why they had to be a part of this film. As well as what message they are hoping to convey.
