The Cleaning Lady

The Cleaning Lady

A film by Jon Knautz

USA, 2018, 90'

While trying to put an end to a troubling affair with a married man, Alice, a young beautician, befriends her cleaning lady, Shelley, whose face was disfigured due to a childhoodaccident. Alice is shy and reclusive, and Shelly will gradually learn more about her, her disturbing past and that some scars run much deeper than they seem. Jon Knautz is a well-known name of the MOTELX audience: his first feature, “Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer”, was the closing film in the 2009 edition, “The Shrine” screened in 2011 and “Goddess of Love” in 2015. Based on a short film — in which now protagonist Alexis Kendra played the role of Shelly —, “The Cleaning Lady” is the director’s most dark, disturbing and genuinely creepy work to date.
