|As a child, May (Angela Bettis) had a
lazy eye and had to wear a patch, which kept other children from
befriending her. Her mother gave her a handmade doll, which became
her only companion. Now, as a young adult, the doll is still May's
only friend. But when she meets Adam (Jeremy Sisto) at a coffee
shop and feels a strong attraction toward him, she tries to
overcome her shyness and pursue him. When he ends their very brief
relationship, however, it cements May's belief that no person is
entirely good--only PARTS of them are good--and she decides to put
that concept into frightening practice. A bizarre, darkly comic,
and bloody horror treat, MAY is a strikingly original directorial
debut from Lucky McKee.
