As renown horror writer Shirley Jackson in SHIRLEY

As the target of an abusive ex in THE INVISIBLE MAN


About Elisabeth Moss

Two of the year’s most inventive thrillers, SHIRLEY and THE INVISIBLE MAN, have one thing in common: actress Elisabeth Moss. As renown horror writer Shirley Jackson, she twists the psychological screws on a young couple, while in the latter film, she’s on the receiving end of abuse from a man who may – or may not – be there. “The idea of seeing something that nobody else can see, that’s my bread and butter,” Moss notes of her INVISIBLE adversary. “It’s what I do every day for a living.” Equally busy on television, the performer brought brutal authenticity to her work on Mad Men, Top of the Lake and her role as Offred in The Handmaid’s Tale, for which she won Emmy and Golden Globe awards for Best Actress in a Drama Series. Moss has also become a force behind the camera, producing films including SHIRLEY and Alex Ross Perry’s HER SMELL, and executive producing The Handmaid’s Tale.

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.

What you can’t see can hurt you. In this terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character, Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) is trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). Finally she escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
