Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)

2011 Martha Marcy May Marlene Movie Film Cinema Poster ArtSean Durkin’s disquieting debut feature film is a slow-paced psychological thriller which works exceedingly well due to the superb performance of its star, Elizabeth Olsen. Olsen works magic to create a totally believable character that sucks us into the dark story.

A good supporting cast includes John Hawkes, Sarah Paulson and  Brady Corbet.
