More Info IMDb

MARTHY MARCY MAY MARLENE (coined "mmmmmmmm" when it premiered at Sundance) is the writing and directing feature debut from newcomer Sean Durkin. Remember his name and write it down - Durkin is well on his way to being the next big bad Hollywood director. MMMM opens with a girl (The Olsen Twins other, actually very talented sister, Elizabeth) fleeing from something very, very terrible. We soon learn she's escaping her recent life from a a small-community-turned-destructive-cult. As she tries to adapt to her new life with family, paranoia, including memories with the aforementioned cult's leader, Patrick (the highly underrated John Hawkes), just may get the best of her. Schizophrenia has never looked so good. (Chase Whale)
