In 'Ma', Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town ('Diana Silvers', 'Glass'), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.
She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”
But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.
Ma also stars Juliette Lewis ('August: Osage County') as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans ('Beauty and the Beast') as a local dad, Missi Pyle ('Gone Girl') as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller ('Hart of Dixie'), Corey Fogelmanis ('Girl Meets World'), Gianni Paolo ('Power') and Dante Brown ('Lethal Weapon' TV series) as Maggie’s friends.
From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of 'The Help' and 'Get On Up', and blockbuster producer Jason Blum ('Get Out', 'Halloween', 'The Purge' series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Octavia Spencer.
