Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)
Director Sean Durkin
A beautiful, emotionally shattered young woman named Martha (Elizabeth Olsen) makes a dawn escape from a cult compound in the Catskill mountains, fleeing to the luxurious home of her married sister and attempts to put her life back together. But with her past spilling into the present, escape from Patrick (John Hawkes), the demented cult leader, might not be so easy.
In Martha Marcy May Marlene, first-time director Sean Durkin has crafted an insidious, slow-burn psychological thriller where the gap between reality, dream and memory becomes desperately menacing. Hallucinatory and unsettling, this is a remarkably confident debut from a bright new talent. - Melbourne International Film Festival 2011
Running Time 101m
Sean Durkin attended the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. He has directed the short films Doris (06) and Mary Last Seen (10). Martha Marcy May Marlene (11) is his first feature.
