MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Martha Marcy May Marlene


Sean Durkin proves to be a skilful director in his chilling debut film “Martha Marcy May Marlene". The film features some really clever editing and cinematography, with some particularly brilliant long takes. The film is propelled by a fantastic breakthrough performance by Elizabeth Olsen, as she even had me feeling nervous at times. Her unnerving performance really had my heart racing in some scenes. At times, she even reminded me of Anne Hathaway in "Rachel Getting Married", a major compliment to her talent. Great work by all involved.
