Martha Marcy May Marlene

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


Haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, a damaged woman struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult.

Martha Marcy May Marlene


The movie starts with really striking sound design that continues throughout, accented with beautiful but plain and muted cinematography combined with good acting from everyone.

An interesting look inside a cult and what it feels like to escape back to normality. There is an intense atmosphere and it’s a slow burn but just lacks something to make it special.
