Back in January, in the midst of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, one of the acquisitions made by Fox Searchlight included the indie drama with a sci-fi twist Another Earth starring and co-written by Brit Marling. Now the distributor who gets amazing indie films to audiences everywhere has just picked up another great film with Marling's talents as Fox Searchlight has announced their acquisition of Sound of My Voice. While I never really found the time to write a full review for the film, it was absolutely one of my favorites at the fest, and currently sits within my five favorite films of the year so far. Story details below.
In Sound of My Voice Peter (Christopher Denham) and Lorna (Nicole Vicius), a young Los Angeles couple, infiltrate the underworld of a cult led by an enigmatic young woman named Maggie (Marling). Intent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the group members from her spell, Peter and Lorna start to question their objective as they unravel the mysteries of Maggie’s past. Marling also wrote this script with Zal Batmanglij who makes his feature directorial debut with the film. It truly is an original, and gripping film that will keep you thinking long after the credits roll. And if you need anymore convincing, you should also read Peter Sciretta's review at SlashFilm. No word on when they'll release the film, but we'll keep you posted. Interested?
