Martha Marcy May Marlene. With a title like that you’d think it was about a woman with multitple personality disorder. According to the plot Elizabeth Olsen as Martha struggles to reassume a normal life after she escapes from an abusive cult. She’s haunted by her time in the cult and a growing paranoia. You might recognize John Hawkes (the trailer makes it look like he’s the cult leader) from last year’s Oscar darling Winter’s Bone.
The film premiered at Sundance in January 2011, but no official US date has been set for release. However, if you happen to be in Europe during the fall Marth Marcy May Marlene will start releasing there in December 2011 (Sweden) and February 2012 (France, UK, Germany).
