Madeline’s Madeline, dir. Josephine Decker, USA 2018, 93 min., English
Madeline has become an active member of an experimental theatre troupe. When its ambitious director pushes Madeline to weave her rich interior world and her troubled relationship with her mother into their collective art, the lines between performance and reality begin to blur.
Starring newcomer Helena Howard, director Josephine Decker’s Sundance-premiering new film refreshes the conventions of a coming-of-age tale through its fragmented, electrifying form.
