Emotionally troubled Madeline (Helena Howard, in an all-time great acting debut) has become integral to her experimental theater group, with her ambitious leader (Molly Parker) encouraging her to tap into her rich interior life—including a troubled relationship with her mother (Miranda July)—as grist for the collective's art. Lines between performance and reality blur, leading to a breathtaking finale that solidifies this as "one of the boldest and most invigorating American films of the 21st century" (IndieWire). Keep your eyes peeled for MFF2017 alum (Bronx Gothic) Okwui Okpokwasili!
