‘The emotions you are having are not your own. They are someone else’s. You are not the cat – you are inside the cat.’ So begins the woozy rollercoaster that is Madeline’s Madeline, where nothing is what it seems.

Madeline (an extraordinary Helena Howard) is a 16-year-old with unspecified mental health problems, the persistence of which have driven a wedge between daughter and mother (Miranda July). Having become an active member of an experimental theatre troupe, Madeline finds a surrogate mother in the ambitious director Evangeline (Molly Parker), who begins to mine Madeline’s delicate mental state and stormy maternal relationship for the purposes of ‘collaboration’. But what does Evangeline really want? 

This startling, impressionistic feature from Josephine Decker transcends traditional coming-of-art drama to create something wholly singular. It will leave your pulse racing and your mind reeling.
