A mysterious nurse becomes dangerously obsessed with saving the soul of her dying patient in Saint Maud, British writer-director Rose Glass’s superb debut: a darkly humorous, insidiously creepy, gothic-tinged psychological horror that has won rave reviews at film festivals around the globe.

“…darkly humorous, insidiously creepy”

Having recently found God, self-effacing young nurse Maud (a brave and brittle performance by Morfydd Clark) is untiring in her spiritual devotion. Landing a job as full-time private carer, she arrives at the plush home of Amanda (Jennifer Ehle), a dancer who’s frail from chronic illness. While they couldn’t be more different – Amanda’s taste for excess is the antithesis of Maud’s pious values – the mismatched pair slowly build a brittle bond of co-dependency. But when a chance encounter with a former colleague hints to a dark past, it becomes clear there is more to Maud than meets the eye...

Glass tenderly captures the relationship between the two women with an empathetic gaze that first assumes an ethereal, dreamlike atmosphere but it isn't long before Maud's fervent beliefs prompt her mind into a suffocating whirlwind of creeping doubt and paranoia. Subtle references to religious horror forerunners like William Friedkin's The Exorcist, add to Saint Maud's increasingly dread-filled malaise. When this insidious fever climactically breaks, the consequences are devastating and terrifying in equal measure.


We have a new seating plan that automatically allocates your seats to ensure social distancing while making the best possible use of our limited capacity. You don't need to do anything to make this happen: just select the number of tickets you need and they'll be automatically assigned. This should provide more flexibility when booking, but if you have any problems our box office team will be very happy to help, and can be reached on 01382 432 444.

If you are visiting the cinema with another household we kindly ask that you book separately so that social distancing can be maintained: alternatively, you can book two bubbles in a single booking by calling Box Office on 01382 432 444.

If you need to book one of our wheelchair seats please contact our box office team on 01382 432 444, or email dca@dca.org.uk.
