Maud (Clark) is an obsessively religious nurse, working in palliative care for retired dancer Amanda (Ehle), whose uninhibited lifestyle sets Maud on edge. Impressive first feature from Glass, which turns into a surreal nightmare of loneliness and doom: barnstorming performances from Clark and Ehle set the screen on fire.
