May is a psychological horror film about a lonely young woman traumatized by a difficult childhood, and her increasingly desperate attempts to connect with the people around her.
Generously sponsored by IATSE 856 Manitoba.
“Angela Bettis delivers a stinging performance as the eponymous May, an isolated woman frolicking at the intersection of madness and clairvoyance. In true Scorpio fashion, and like many cinematic weird girls before her, May’s story is characterized by profound obsession, rejection, and longing that culminates in an utterly violent and cathartic act of vengeance.” – Nic Kaneski
