The Movie Club: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Yes Martha Marcy May Marlene has a veritable tongue twister for a title, but as a brilliant, slow burn psychological thriller, it will similarly skewer your brain!

Featuring a must-see debut performance from Elizabeth Olsen (yes, the younger sister of Mary Kate and Ashley) as our titular heroine on the run from a cult, Martha Marcy May Marlene also heralds an exciting new writing and directing talent from first timer Sean Durkin.

Controlled, graceful and oh so creepy, this film had us all on the edge of our seats. So join me, Girlfriend Magazine’s Lauren Smelcher Sams and Trespass Magazine’s Beth Wilson as we consider joining a cult, as well as marvel over the film’s gossamer fine line between memory and paranoia.
