gave me chills throughout the movie. Olsen was great.
movie gave me the creeps...really strong performances by hawkes and olsen.
a very intense, interesting thriller. olsen gives an oscar worthy performance.
creepy movie - loved it!!
freaky movie!!....a tad slow, but emotionally draining and intense movie. olsen deserved more recognition for her brilliant performance.
although the ending is a bit wierd..very intense and disturbing movie. olsen aand hawkes give fantastic performances.
brilliant and haunting film about a girl trying to reclaim her life after escaping a cult. terrific performances by elizabeth olsen and john hawkes. understated and nuanced without the usual melodrama.
movie had no point and a stupid ending
what a waste of time. totally unbelievable and melodramatic.
Really enjoyed this movie - kept me interested right to the end.
interesting concept - well done
amazing plot and acting...was a tad confused about the ending though...
Well acted but I am getting tired of movie endings that leave you hanging
I got lost in this story. very internal.
very odd premiere that i saw, did not like this movie.
An unforgettable film. One of the crowning achievements of the year. A rather somber film with disturbing elements and paranoia present.
Interesting movie - it held my attention for the duration. Would reccommend it!
Poor Martha only wanted a family that would support and not desert her....and becomes the victim of a charasmatic leader. I think the most heart breaking part of the movie is that she turns to her sister for protection and that sister gives up on her. Of course her behavior is frustrating and intereferes with her new marriage, but it is also clear that something terrible has happened to this girl, which we learn in a series of flashbacks. Superbly acted and directed, this should be the indie darling contender at this year's Oscars, and it will haunt you for days after you see it.
This the best movie I have seen all year. It's a strange blend of drama and thriller that keeps you wondering what will happen next. Great performances by all the actors, especially Elizabeth Olsen. A must-see film.
Well written and a different sort of movie. It entertained without being formulaic. Enjoyed it.
Great writing and plot. Very intereseting.
Love this type of movie. Great plot, super acting and kept me on the edge of my seat.
Creepy! Quite a movie. Great performances.
A perfectly crafted film that focuses more on the psychological impact the actions have on the character rather than just the action itself. Both young new actress Elizabeth Olsen and John Hawkes gave GREAT performances that should not be forgotten comes awards season. A very good start for promising newcomer Sean Durkin.
Confusing movie and depressing at times. Acting was good. Sad ending.
An excellent movie.
It will be an Oscar moment for Liz Olsen....she and the film as a whole shone.
An excellent movie about a young girl trying to re-connect with her family after going through a very diffcult and traumatic period in her life. Elizabeth Olsen gives a stunning performance in this film.
