Martha Marcy May Marlene is a powerful psychological thriller in a similar vein to 2010’s Winter’s Bone. Martha (Olsen) is a young woman rapidly unraveling amidst her attempt to reclaim a normal life, after fleeing from a cult and its charismatic leader (Hawkes).
Seeking help from her estranged older sister Lucy (Paulson) and brother-in-law (Dancy), Martha is unable and unwilling to reveal the truth about her disappearance.
When her memories trigger a chilling paranoia that her former cult could still be pursuing her, the line between Martha’s reality and delusion begins to blur.
