Trailer for ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ Is Just Unsettling

First time director Sean Durkin may just have a masterpiece on his hands.  As one of the most praised films to come out of Sundance this year, Martha Marcy May Marlene also stars Elizabeth Olsen (yes, related to the twins) who is said to give an amazing performance.  The trailer is here and it’s great, John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone) shows why he’s one of the best working today.

Elizabeth Olsen is Martha, a damaged woman haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, who struggles to reassimilate with her family after fleeing a cult.
