Synopsis of Saint Maud on Solarmovie sc: There, except 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 a fanatical conviction that she must save her ward’s soul from damnation – regardless of the cost. Making her feature debut, writer-director Rose Glass cannily lures the audience into this disturbed psyche, steadily fixing her veritable diary of a rustic nurse for an unnerving and ultimately shocking trajectory. Morfydd Clark (also at the Festival within 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 captures this relationship with an empathetic gaze that first assumes an ethereal, dreamlike atmosphere – but it is not long before Maud’s dogmatic candor incites an irreconcilable friction that spirals her mind into a suffocating confluence of creeping doubt and paranoia. As Glass tightens the screws on her misguided martyr, well-placed nods are made to spiritual horror forerunners like William Friedkin’s The Exorcist, further contributing to the film’s increasingly dread-filled malaise. And when this insidious fever climatically breaks, the results are devastating and terrifying in equal measure.
