Storyline

There, but for the grace of God, goes Maud, a reclusive young nurse whose impressionable demeanor causes her to pursue a pious path of Christian devotion after an obscure trauma. Now charged with the hospice care of Amanda, a retired dancer ravaged by cancer, Maud's fervent faith quickly inspires an obsessive conviction that she must save her ward's soul from eternal damnation - whatever the cost. Making her feature film debut, writer-director Rose Glass cannily lures the audience into this disturbed psyche, steadily setting up her veritable diary of a country nurse for an unnerving and ultimately shocking trajectory. Morfydd Clark (also at the Festival in The Personal History of David Copperfield) portrays the sanctimonious Maud with an intense stoicism that belies a disquieting vulnerability, as Maud desperately vies for absolution and solidarity from her embittered patient (an enthralling Jennifer Ehle, also at the Festival in Beneath the Blue Suburban Skies). Glass tenderly ... Written by Toronto International Film Festival

User Reviews

 
A deeply average film
1 November 2020 | by kieranbourneSee all my reviews

Tonight was my first visit to the cinema since before lockdown and what better way to return than to watch a critically acclaimed horror on Halloween night.

Regrettably, St Maud lacked in scares and overdosed on artsy-fartsy nothingness typically found in low-budget independent horror films. Babadook and Mandy sprung to mind after 30 minutes when I could feel not only my arse aching but a desire to leave the cinema that I had not experienced for a long time.

I want my wasted hours back.
