John Hawkes Sings Marcy's Song

"She's just a picture… that's all." Fox Searchlight has posted what they're referring to as a music video for Jackson C. Frank's "Marcy's Song", the very eerie yet beautiful song from Sean Durkin's Martha Marcy May Marlene, which just hit the art house circuit. In the film, and in this video, the song is sung by actor John Hawkes, who plays one of the cult leaders in the indie drama also starring Elizabeth Olsen as one of his followers, that he sings this to one night. This is the original cover of the song sung by Hawkes, but it's only just him with a guitar the whole time, nonetheless it's great to listen to. You can watch the video below!

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 has started a limited release of Martha Marcy May Marlene starting October 21st - for full expansion info click here. Visit their official website.

Jackson C Frank rules, this version is pretty amazing too. He does have quite a scary stare throughout, but just listening to it, I'm enjoying the song.
