Elizabeth Olsen fights paranoia in the Martha Marcy May Marlene trailer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
One of the most talked about performances at this years Sundance Film Festival came from Elizabeth Olsen for her role in MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE. I’ve been eagerly awaiting a trailer and release date for this film and I’m happy to show you the trailer below and let you know that it’s set for release on July 10, 2011. From the trailer it’s tough to tell exactly what the story is about, but Olsen plays Martha/ Marcy May/ Marlene, a girl who has left an abusive cult and is trying to reintegrate back into her family, however she is haunted by memories and wrought with paranoia with the things that took place in her past. The film was directed by Sean Durkin and also stars: Sarah Paulson, John Hawkes, Hugh Dancy and Brady Corbet.
This is definitely one of those films to keep an eye on for later this year during award season. I smell another WINTER’S BONE among us and hopefully the elder Olsen sister will gain some respect similar to that of Jennifer Lawrence.
