In her stunning feature film debut, Elizabeth Olsen delivers "an electrifying, star-is-born performance" (Rolling Stone) in this gripping psychological thriller that is "far and away one of the year's best!" (Associated Press) After escaping from a dangerous cult and the watchful eye of its charismatic leader (Academy Awardr Nominee John Hawkes), a young woman named Martha (Olsen) tries to reclaim a normal life with her family. But the haunting memories from Martha's past trigger a chilling paranoia - and nowhere seems safe as the fragile line between her reality and delusions begin to blur.

The highlight of this film was the powerful performance by Elizabeth Olsen, supported by the very talented Sarah Paulson playing her sister, and John Hawkes as the scary cult figure who sucked Martha Marcy May into his disgusting vortex. There are really no spoilers here - the ending is so anti-climatic that my husband let out a loud groan and said it was the worst movie he has ever seen. He was exaggerating, considering he has seen well over 1,000 movies, but I agree that the ending was a cop out and a huge let down after enduring all that angst without any payoff. I am all for enigmatic endings, but this was abrasively abrupt and not effectively done. The very last scene seemed to veer off into what one might expect in a horror movie.
