Details

Malgorzata Szumowska’s striking English-language debut uses a feverish fantasy of women at the mercy of a charismatic cult leader to dissect the horrors of toxic masculinity and the abuse of power. Having cleansed themselves ‘from the rot of the outside world’, a group of women live in a remote rural area under the rule of Shepherd (Michiel Huisman). Selagh (a fierce Raffey Cassidy) has never known a life beyond the community. Increasingly inclined to question this world, her coming-of-age becomes a fight for emancipation in a drama with echoes of The Handmaid’s Tale.
