A sensational film about religious frenzy. A nurse sets out to save the soul of her dying patient. Jennifer Ehle is wonderful as the patient, and Morfydd Clark is extraordinary as Maud.
Reminiscent of something like The Witch, this focuses on the ecstatics of devotion. A psychological horror with an unreliable narrator, Maud’s perspective on what is happening differs massively from the secular audience. The tension just winds up as that divide gets wider and wider.
Hold your breath.
