Master Gardener

Paul Schrader | 2023 | 107 MINS
USA
A meticulous horticulturist is devoted to tending the grounds of a beautiful estate and pandering to his employer, the wealthy dowager. His past life catches up with him with the arrival of an apprentice.

In Detail

Things between employer and gardener get tense when Norma (Sigourney Weaver) asks Narvel (Joel Edgerton) to take on her young grand-niece, Maya, as an apprentice.

Maya does well in the job and when she starts getting threatened by a drug gang in her tough neighbourhood, Narvel’s own secret past in crime rises to the surface as he sets out to protect her. “Gardening is a belief in the future,” Narvel preaches, but it’s the character’s shocking past that forms the beating heart of this edgy drama from writer-director Paul Schrader. Weaver’s crackling grande dame imperiousness adds another layer of brilliance.
