When Madeline (Helena Howard) joins a prestigious theatre group, director Evangeline (Molly Parker) knows she’s found her star. Effortlessly talented, Madeline has an uncanny ability to pour herself into every role. But something isn’t quite right; Madeline’s stopped taking her medication, and her grasp on reality has started to slip. As fact and fiction blur, Madeline is in danger of losing herself completely. Her mother Regina (Miranda July) begs her to take a break, but Evangeline wants to push her even harder – perhaps beyond her breaking point.

Madeline’s Madeline is out in cinemas and on MUBI from 10 May.
