Martha Marcy May Marlene (out Feb 2) is an affecting character study. It's about a vulnerable young woman (Elizabeth Olsen) who has spent two years inside a cult and is struggling to rebuild her life. Told using a fragmented narrative, writer-director Sean Durkin isn’t offering any easy answers… and nor should he be. Grade: B+.
