A religious nurse becomes fixated on saving her dying patient, in Rose Glass’ directorial debut and journey into pathological obsession.
Maud, a recent convert to Catholicism, lives quietly as a palliative care nurse. She is sent to look after a woman, a former dancer, terminally ill with cancer. So far, so ordinary. But Maud becomes unhealthily obsessed with her new patient and her comings and goings, and what follows is a wild, riotous tale of religion, sex and death, with director Rose Glass demonstrating why she reigns supreme amongst the current new wave of exciting British directors. Saint Maud is like nothing you’ve quite seen before, with all the aesthetic quirkiness we’ve come to expect from an A24 production.
Good Thanks, You?
Amy has been the victim of a sexual assault. Good Thanks, You? is the story of what happens next. Her own feelings of shame, exacerbated by unhelpful interrogations by those who are meant to be beside her, paints a bleak, yet sadly all too familiar picture of the lack of care offered to victims of sexual assault.
