Octavia Spencer delivers an unnervingly daring performance as Sue Ann, a lonely woman who keeps to herself in a quiet Ohio town. When local teenager Maggie (Diana Silvers, Glass) asks Sue Ann to buy booze for her group of friends, she decides to make some new friends of her own and offers her basement for the kids to party. They just have to follow a few simple house rules: Someone has to stay sober, don’t curse, never go upstairs and call her “Ma.” As Ma’s hospitality curdles into obsession, her place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) and executive produced by Octavia Spencer, MA features an outstanding supporting cast including Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast), Missi Pyle (Gone Girl), McKaley Miller (“Hart of Dixie”), Corey Fogelmanis (“Girl Meets World”), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power), and Dante Brown (“Lethal Weapon” TV series).
