"★★★★★ – an exquisite slice of religious horror" – Independent
"★★★★★ – will haunt you long after the credits have rolled" – Observer
"★★★★★ – punches out its warped drama with amazing gusto" – Guardian
"★★★★ – Original, unsettling and surprisingly moving, it’s a strong calling card for filmmaker Rose Glass and actor Morfydd Clark" – Empire
A deeply unnerving film with an incredible central performance from Morfydd Clark, Saint Maud arrives on a wave of critical praise.
A reclusive nurse who tends to former dancer Amanda (Jennifer Ehle), Maud finds herself increasingly overcome with a religious fervour.
Convinced she has been put on earth to save Amanda’s soul, Maud’s behaviour becomes increasingly alarming as she embraces a punishing ascetic lifestyle.
A psychological horror film with images that will burn into your mind, Saint Maud will linger long after the credits roll.
Dir: Rose Glass
