Martha Marcy May Marlene with Elizabeth Olsen and John Hawkes in person


With Elizabeth Olsen, Sarah Paulson, John Hawkes. This spellbinding drama about a woman who escapes from a polygamous cult and struggles to reconnect with her family after years of abuse and estrangement is one of the year’s most riveting independent films, an impressive feature debut by Sean Durkin. The remarkable ensemble cast is headed by Elizabeth Olsen’s haunting performance, which is at once fierce and quietly mysterious.
