Martha decided to leave the people whom she lived with for a couple of years. Now that she stays with her sister and trying to reconnect with her family, she struggles with the nightmares of her past. *** Martha Marcy May Marlene is another great, good, and true films recently. The whole film was so silent yet very strong on the message. The thrill comes in an extraordinary way which give the film more depth and significance. Actors delivered well and the piece, obviously not mainstream, brought something new to audience.

An okay story about a young woman who escapes a cult and tries to right her life with her sister. Through flashbacks, we see the horrors she went through as she tries to readjust to a normal life, but has difficulty fitting in and dissecting what is real and what isn't. The story is interesting enough, and the cast does a pretty good job. Unfortunately the film has an extremely ambiguous ending that will probably work for some, but just didn't for me. After investing 2 hours into a film I guess I just demand a little more resolution instead of saying "that's it?"

A decent movie that I have heard good things about. I liked the story a lot. It was unique an told well. Better than winters bone in every way. The ending was pretty dumb but at least it was not a cop out. Those that want something that is fresh, check it out.

This is an emotionally tight and tense drama. It's the kind of tense that boils underneath the surface, in a psychological manner. I was glued to this film right from the start and haven't stopped thinking about it since. It's an exceptionally well crafted story, but the majority of the praise belongs to Elizabeth Olsen. She is fantastic. The ending is quite ambiguous, but it works in a strange way. This is easily one of the best films of 2011.

Very disturbing and convincingly scary story

Movie was impressive as it deals with issues everybody certainly has when tries to get rid of painful memories and rise above them - but these were so extreme ones, from a cult that mentally and physically abused our heroine's innocence and will to believe in goodness. She had enough common sense to realize something is terribly wrong with them, but not enough to regain trust in her family, because she constantly avoided their efforts to get close to her. Was that a shame that didn't allow her to open herself to her sister, we won't ever know for certain - what we know is that the trauma would be very hard to cure, as well as the paranoia that seems well-founded, knowing that Patrick, the cult leader, wasn't so well-meaning and well-mannered man. I had problems with accepting her refusal ...
