Master Gardener follows Narvel Roth (award-winner Joel Edgerton), the meticulous horticulturist of Gracewood Gardens. He is as much devoted to tending the grounds of this beautiful and historic estate, to pandering to his employer, the wealthy dowager Mrs. Haverhill (three-time Academy Award® nominee Sigourney Weaver). When Mrs. Haverhill demands that he take on her wayward and troubled great-niece Maya (Quintessa Swindell) as a new apprentice, chaos enters Narvel’s spartan existence, unlocking dark secrets from a buried violent past that threaten them all.
Master Gardener is written and directed by Paul Schrader and stars Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Quintessa Swindell and Esai Morales.
The film had its world premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival.
Magnolia Pictures will release the film in cinemas on 19th May 2023.
