Saint Maud is written and directed by Rose Glass in her feature directorial debut with Andrea Cornwell and Oliver Kassman serving as producers and was set to hit theaters in the US on April 3 and the UK on May 1, but amidst global pandemic concerns is now left undated. It made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September to rave reviews, currently maintaining a 93% approval rating form critics on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes.
Saint Maud is a chilling and boldly original vision of faith, madness, and salvation in a fallen world. Maud, a newly devout hospice nurse, becomes obsessed with saving her dying patient’s soul — but sinister forces, and her own sinful past, threaten to put an end to her holy calling.
