Acclaimed independent filmmaker Josephine Decker returns to the screen with her third fiercely original fiction feature, Madeline's Madeline, a bold, visionary work that expands on the extraordinary promise of her two previous dramas. Set in contemporary New York City and the volatile headspace of its title character – the film explores the emotions, perceptions and struggles of a brilliant and troubled young woman whose life becomes a performance. New York actress Helena Howard, now 19, makes her spectacular screen debut playing Madeline, a biracial New Jersey teenager who wrestles with an often fraught relationship with her mother Regina (played by writer-director Miranda July).
