"Martha Marcy May Marlene" Trailer

I've had a wary eye on this movie ever since it started getting early buzz for actress Elizabeth Olsen (sister to Mary-Kate and Ashley), and this trailer did not disappoint. It looks like this film will have that extra punch of grittiness and unsettlingness that I wish had been more prevalent in the impossible-not-to-compare-to "Winter's Bone". John Hawkes's presence is very reassuring (he looks sufficiently creepy but lovable) and as a proponent of the elder Olsens, it should be fascinating to see what their sister does in what looks to be a very actressy vehicle.

How about you? Are you yay or nay on this Sundance drama? Comments below!


  1. We shall see this, and we shall write. WRITE!

    I'm actually looking forward to seeing this.

  2. definitely a yay.
    does exactly what a good trailer's supposed to do.

  3. Looks like a potentially unsettling movie and a great acting showcase for Elizabeth Olsen. Damn, John Hawkes seems like a guy who could kill you for looking at him the wrong way.
