About the Film

2020, Neon, 107 min, USA, Dir: Josephine Decker

Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson (Elisabeth Moss) is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband (Michael Stuhlbarg). The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naive young couple at their door. Winner of the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Auteur Filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival. “As willfully unconventional as a literary portrait could possibly be, MADELINE’S MADELINE director Josephine Decker’s take on Shirley Jackson is a thrillingly perverse example of what happens when the shackles of biopic formula are cast aside.” – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian.
