An international trailer for the psychological thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene has been made available by Fox Searchlight Pictures today. In it, a woman seeks to re-assimilate herself to the real world after escaping from an all-consuming cult. It’s not as easy as it may seem, especially when she can’t be sure what is real and what is a brainwashed delusion. Aided by her sister and brother-in-law, she works to clear her head, even though she is convinced the murderous cult — and its maniacal leader — is actively searching for her. Martha Marcy May Marlene got high marks at Sundance this year, so it it may be one to watch for when it hits theaters later this year.
Martha Marcy May Marlene stars Elizabeth Olsen, Christopher Abbott, Brady Corbet, Julia Garner, Hugh Dancy, Maria Dizzia and John Hawkes.
Martha Marcy May Marlene deludes US theaters on October 21, 2011 and UK theaters on February 3, 2012.
