About this movie

Live-in nurse Maud (Morfydd Clark) arrives at the home of Amanda (Jennifer Ehle), a famous dancer 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. But Maud is not all that she seems. She is tormented by a violent secret from her past and by ecstatic messages she believes are directly from God. She becomes convinced she has been sent to Amanda not simply as a nurse, but to serve a divine purpose. As her grip on reality slides out of control, Maud's care turns into a deadly mission to save Amanda's soul, by any means necessary.

Very entertaining - in a menacing kind of way. There's something compellingly realistic about this tale of a young woman's descent into insanity, or as the case may be, possession by personified evil - the devil himself. I'm not sure which way to jump in this regard. The question remains open, just as the director intended, I'm sure. And I got a little scared too, towards the end, just as he intended I get.

Solid Character film. Like Taxi driver meets The Witch. Heads up since it's a character study kind of artsy indie film it is a slow burn but if you like A24 content then I recommend it. Score is solid too.
