Werewolves Within News

Me watching the filming on the monitor

So excited for, Werewolves Within. It's in theaters June 25, 2021--written by yours truly, directed by Josh Ruben. The movie stars Sam Richardson (Veep), Milana Vayntrub (This is Us) and a comedic ensemble so talented they made everything they touched entertaining. Here's some fun write ups on it, and the Entertainment Weekly piece even has some awesome stills from the set.

IN THE PRESS

All of Wolff’s experiences funnel into this buoyant memoir, which is rich in detail but never feels overembellished...the tone manages to be light and triumphant because of the hilarious child-goggles Wolff wears while spinning her tales. GradeA

Tanner Stransky 

Entertainment Weekly

Wolff's storytelling borderlines on brilliance, and indeed rises above that line... To a humorous and often touching effect, Wolff replays a journey than not all of the members of her family were willing to take. 

​Eric Easter

Ebony Magazine

Mishna Wolff’s I’m Down (St. Martin’s Press) is an

authentically funny, truly transcendent work that

makes other, sorry-voiced memoirs by a certain more

privileged class of writer pale—pun intended—by comparison.
