When Madeline joins a prestigious theatre group, director Evangeline knows she's found her star.
Effortlessly talented, Madeline has an uncanny ability to pour herself into every role, but something isn’t quite right; Madeline's stopped taking her medication, and her grasp on reality has started to slip. As fact and fiction blur, Madeline is in danger of losing herself completely.
Mesmerising and distinctively shot, Madeline's Madeline explores ideas of race and identity, cultural appropriation and exploitation, as well as the creative process and the overlap between art and life, alongside the pressures of growing up.
