Must Watch: Sundance Hit 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' First Trailer
"You're a teacher and a leader Marcy, now prove it!" Fox Searchlight has debuted the first official trailer on Apple for the Sundance hit Martha Marcy May Marlene, which many of my friends and colleagues referred to as their favorite film of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Yet again, Fox Searchlight knows how to cut amazing trailers from fantastic films. Martha Marcy May Marlene is one of a few cult films from Sundance this year, starring breakout actress Elizabeth Olsen (yes, the third Olsen sister) in a very odd, but intricate, role. I don't know how any cinephile wouldn't want to see this film after watching this trailer.

Martha Marcy May Marlene stars newcomer Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a damaged woman haunted by her memories and increasing paranoia, who struggles to reassimilate with her family after fleeing a cult.
Martha Marcy May Marlene is both written and directed by first-time filmmaker Sean Durkin, of only a couple of shorts previously. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where Sean won the Dramatic Directing Award. Fox Searchlight picked this up during the fest and will be releasing Martha Marcy May Marlene in limited theaters beginning October 21st later this fall. So what did you think of that trailer?
