Maid, Netflix’s new emotional drama, has just debuted on the streaming service, and fans are praising it for its candid examination of crucial themes like domestic abuse and female support networks. We present you to Rylea Nevaeh Whittet, the young actress who plays Maddy in the show.
Maid, a new Oscar candidate, is now available on Netflix.
The film Maid is based on Stephanie Land’s memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive. The show follows Alex (Margaret Qualley), a young mother, as she struggles for custody of her child while seeking to leave an extremely abusive relationship.
Molly Smith Metzler, the show’s creator, has expressed her aim for the series to appropriately convey mental and physical abuse:
“We can see the bruises and punches. The corrosive, gradual, and brutal denegation of self is something we don’t see. It was critical for me to portray that on screen and have you experience it as a spectator.”
