Martha Marcy May Marlene

If you’re looking for a nice Sunday evening’s viewing, then I wouldn’t recommend this.

If you’re happy to be made to think, and are ready for something gentle yet sinister and chilling, then this is the film.

It’s difficult to talk about the film without giving too much away, but I think this from Internet Movie Database gives just enough:

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

Flipping backwards and forwards between her adopted ‘family’ and her sister’s house, the creepiness gradually builds as some of the circumstances are hinted at – but will we ever discover the full truth behind the situation?

This was not a film to enjoy as such, but the story stayed with me for a long while afterwards.
