Martha Marcy May Marlene Trailer

Martha Marcy May Marlene Trailer: Elizabeth Olsen Escapes a Cult

Elizabeth Olsen has already garnered attention just by virtue of being the little sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, but she earned raves for her fledgling acting career at Sundance earlier this year. Martha Marcy May Marlene was one of the films she appeared in at the festival, and we can watch the trailer for it now.

She stars as Martha, a young woman who appears disheveled and confused when we first meet her, seeking help from a relative (Sarah Paulson). As she's rescued from the apparently distressing situation she was in, we see flashes of the experience she just left. As a guest at the home of Patrick (John Hawkes), she's welcomed with open arms, and then slowly pushed into doing things she's not entirely comfortable with. It becomes clear that she's in a bad situation, and once she's out, Martha shows signs of instability as her family tries to understand what happened to her. The trailer weaves in flashbacks with Martha's current situation, and though it's disorienting, it looks intense, and Olsen does seem impressive. Watch it when you read on.

There are a few scenes where I could have sworn she was a younger Maggie Gyllenhaal. I'm looking forward to seeing this!
