“Martha Marcy May Marlene” may have the set-up of a horror film (a young woman escapes from a cult and fears that she may be dogged by its members), but star Elizabeth Olsen has a broader perspective.
“It’s not really a film about a cult,” she insists in our video chat. “It’s a family drama about what you say and what you don’t say to the people around you and how they provide love and what you need.”
Roger Ebert hails the production as, “A good film, ambitious and effective, introducing a gifted young actress and a director whose work I’ll anticipate.” Below, we also chat with writer/director Sean Durkin.
