Watching Davis in Jocelyn Moorhouse’s entertainingly ripe genre potpourri, you wonder where she’s been, and why we don’t see more of her. Her Mad Molly slings fine-tuned vitriol, at once funny and frightening, but her affection for Tilly (Kate Winslet) is plain, if never telegraphed. The performance makes you eager for her next gig, as Hedda Hopper in Ryan Murphy’s 2017 FX anthology series Feud. — Harry Windsor
