Martha Marcy May Marlene @ Roskilde Cinema

I just returned from this year's Roskilde Festival. It was a good one, and apart from the music, the fun, the friends and so on, one of the things I enjoy the most is the Roskilde Cinema. One morning, for example, when I was really hungover, I went to see Drive with a couple of friends.

They also have a few "surprise" screenings. You have no idea what film you are about to watch until you are seated and the film starts to show.
I went to one of these and the film turned out to be Martha Marcy May Marlene by director Sean Durkin. I had never heard of the film, so I watched it with absolutely no presumptions.

And I really liked the movie. It is a about a young girl who escapes the cult she has been living with for two years and the difficulties she experiences trying to re-adapt to normal family life and social norms. The film offers an analysis of what makes a young girl like Martha stay in a cult. It is a quiet but intense movie with a lot of suspense.

The film has beautiful filmography and includes great perfomances by Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of The Olsen Twins, and John Hawkes.

In Danish theaters now & remember to watch the trailer in HD.
