Mark Keizer quote iconWhat reads like a cheapie slasher flick about a domestic servant with territory issues is actually a minutely observed chamber piece about class division and personal awakening.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconTight direction and smart performances give heft to what’s essentially a modest character study. A rich vein of black comedy also makes The Maid more than a cautionary tale for the nouveau riche.
