Madeline (Helena Howard) has become an integral part of a prestigious physical theater troupe. When the workshop’s ambitious director (Molly Parker) pushes the teenager to weave her rich interior world and troubled history with her mother (Miranda July) into their collective art, the lines between performance and reality begin to blur. The resulting battle between imagination and appropriation ripples out of the rehearsal space, affecting all three women’s lives. Josephine Decker’s latest is a a tour de force, a vivacious, mischievous reimagining of cinematic language anchored by a magnetic turn by newcomer Helena Howard.

Q&A with director Josephine Decker to follow both screenings.
