Religious obsession turns into psychological horror in this acclaimed debut feature. Maud is a fervently religious nurse with a traumatic past who takes on a job caring for a hedonistic ex-dancer, now in the late stages of a terminal illness. As these two opposing personalities form an uneasy co-dependency, Maud becomes dangerously fixated with saving her patient’s soul. With pitch perfect performances from the two leads and shot through with a sense of unease and increasing psychosis, Saint Maud builds to a shocking finale.
