You can now watch Cat Person—among other literary adaptations at Sundance—online.
If you’ve ever dreamed of being cool enough to go to Sundance (same), I’ve got good news for you: you can buy tickets for virtual screenings for only $20 a pop! This year’s fest has an enticing lineup, as always, but we’re a website about books, so we recommend the following literary adaptations (and lit-adjacent films).
Films will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. MT tomorrow, and you can start your screening at any time until 11:55 p.m. MT on January 29th. Buy your tickets here, and happy streaming!
Based on: Kristen Roupenian’s viral short story “Cat Person”
