Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

An intriguing, heightened take on coming of age when life can seem ‘just a metaphor’ as ways of being in the world are tried and discarded and one can be 'inside the cat’ liking being stroked - but wanting to choose when and how. It's an at times disconcerting take on mental illness, manipulation, family dynamics, acting out and bizarre choices and it demands concentration and focus! But there are rewards.
