Martha Marcy May Marlene

Never free.

After fleeing the cult which ruled her life, a woman struggles to make peace with her reunited family, and avoid persistent memories of past misdeeds.

Elizabeth Olsen, one of the better young actresses working today, is mesmerizing as she dances on a thin line of sanity.

Can she return to “normal” life? Will she even allow herself to consider the possibility?

In her past, cult leader John Hawkes (the king of active character actors) looms large, and her long-stored pain and rage provoke hallucinations and paranoia.

Just because you can go home, doesn’t necessarily mean things are over.
