UNSANE: Phone Call

Official clip

"Foy is backed up by two fine supporting performances from Jay Pharoah ... and Polly McKie as a steely charge nurse who can ratchet with the best of them."

“The filmmaker's knack for casting is also apparent...including Polly McKie as a nurse who stops just short of going full Ratched”


Polly McKie and Claire Foy



"The text ... is detonated by the women. McKie and Shipley’s first scene is gorgeous: The two mothers sip tea at the kitchen table, comfortably gossiping and plotting as they tear their children’s romantic ideas to shreds. They are funny and awful and superb."


Sandra Shipley and Polly McKie in 

"The Daughter-in-Law"

"Miss Mathieson isn’t around much, but what Ms. McKie does with her one big scene, a confessional moment of yearning, is heart-stopping."

"A Day by the Sea"

"McKie is just devastating, though understated, as the 35 year old caretaker...

With straightforward dignity that hides self-loathing, she offers herself as a wife to the elderly doctor..."

"Miss Gluck, played by a hilarious, haunting Polly McKie...not in the best of health, as Williams suggests with a wicked bit of scatological humor, Miss Gluck embodies the fear underlying the other women’s romantic notions and machinations."

Polly McKie and Kristine Nielsen in 

"A Lovely Sunday for Creve Couer"

"The descent of upstairs neighbor Miss Gluck
(a scene-stealing Polly McKie portraying a depressive Valkyrie) adds further chaos
to the mix."
