Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)

Rated R

Escaping from a cult in rural New York, Martha tries to reconnect with her sister. Although, the brainwashing Martha endured prevents her from understanding her sister’s world. Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Christopher Abbott, Brady Corbet, Hugh Dancy, John Hawkes, Sarah Paulson

This is an astonishing film. Elizabeth Olsen’s performance of Martha is unreal. Sean Durkin with his storytelling of a woman not only getting  immerse into a cult but also trying to leave that world behind her is shocking. Durkin’s imagination of  Martha’s confusion of which world she’s in or has she left the cult? It’s shocking and scary how cult leaders can manipulate their followers. This is a can’t miss film.
