Tonight, Stan releases its newest Australian coproduction with Wolf Like Me.
“Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light.” ~ Groucho Marx
This beauty of a quote kicks off Wolf Like Me where we meet Gary (Josh Gad), a 40-year-old single father still reeling from the death of his wife years early, out on a date that’s going badly. His daughter Emma (Ariel Donoghue) is also still feeling the effects of the tragic loss as she struggles to connect with her dad.
The duo’s world is shaken when their worlds collide with advice columnist Mary (Isla Fisher) who helps Emma recover from a panic attack. This sounds like your standard romantic comedy, but Mary is hiding a massive secret that pushes Wolf Like Me into something quite unexpected. Will these two be able to work through their hurdles? You’ll just have to tune in to find out!
Creator and writer Abe Forsythe delivers something magical as he juggles different genres and twists. It’s a fun ride full of emotion and humour.
Gad and Fisher are compelling as leads with emotional baggage and it’s nice to see them given the chance to play more dramatic roles. Ariel Donoghue is also a star on the rise with some fantastic performances as the series unfolds.
Wolf Like Me explores the secrets we hold make and this show certainly has many secrets to reveal, so be sure to add it to your watch list.
Wolf Like Me is now streaming on Stan.
