Director: Rose Glass
Starring: Morfydd Clark, Jennifer Ehle, Lily Knight
The exceptional debut film from writer-director Rose Glass heralds the arrival of a bold new voice in British cinema. Saint Maud is a chilling original vision of faith, psychosis and salvation in a fallen world, set against the ethereal lights of a desolate seaside town.
Breakout star Morfydd Clark (Dracula, His Dark Materials) is the unnerving but lonely Maud, a newly-devout hospice nurse. Maud arrives at the home of famous dancer Amanda (Jennifer Ehle), who is now frail from illness and trapped in her grand, isolated house.
At first Amanda is intrigued by this religious young woman, who provides distraction from her failing health. Maud, in turn, is bewitched by her new patient. Yet this young nurse is not all that she seems and sinister forces, and her own sinful past, threaten to put an end to her holy calling.
Unlike anything else in recent years, Saint Maud is a deeply unnerving must-see for film-lovers and adventurous horror fans alike.
