Madeline (Helena Howard) is a young and talented actress who is crippled with deep emotional problems and whose relationship with her mother (the acclaimed indie filmmaker Miranda July) is very tense. Evangeline (Molly Parker), the ambitious director of an experimental theatre company, becomes aware of Madeline’s magnetism and wants to exploit her intimate life at any cost in order to make her the lead actress in a play. From then onwards, Madeline starts to lose herself between reality and fiction, as tensions between her artistic mentor and her mother escalate.  

Josephine Decker delivers a visually dramatic work whose sound design is equally powerful, resulting in a dream state experience. The film’s cinematographic intensity pieces a character study in which Helena Howard makes her film debut with true histrionic strength. Madeline’s Madeline is also a piercing approach to the tense power relationships between directors and actors.
