0.5 out of 10 No no no
Seamus from Monaghan, 08 Dec 2012
She was in a cult. Now she's with her sister. now she's having a flashback to the cult, no wait she's with her sister, no wrong that's another flashback. I stayed with this until the very disappointing end in the hope that a story would unfold. One did........ kinda! It would be a good story except it finished just as it was getting interesting. the closing shot of the film prompted us to leap of the sofa and with one voice yell, 'oh for god's sake'. The acting is superb but the story is so mixed up it's not worth the brain power involved in watching it.

3 out of 10 Bad ending!
Nuala from Dublin, 04 Sep 2012
Now then...yes it was all very intriguing and everything as a lot of the story is told in flashback and you keep watching because you get so drown in by some very interesting characters. However the pay of never really comes. Yes, we get to know some of what has happened in this girls past but not enough to gratify you and the ending is very unsatisfactory and in my opinion a total cope out. Nicely shoot and good performances all round

3.5 out of 10 Does the title have to be so long
Neasa from Dublin, 23 Oct 2012
I liked this film and I think it's worth a watch. The cinematography and the shift in time frames is really clever but I found some of the character relationships didn't really add up and the ending is quite frustrating. All in all it's a good story and Elisabeth Olsen is great in it. I'll definitely be looking out for her in the future.

2.5 out of 10 Creeeeeepy
Liz from Cork, 13 Feb 2013
I was impressed with the acting (can't believe she's related to the Olsen twins!) and it's a great subject for a film (life after escaping a cult). It was a bit slow and the end leaves you wanting, but I can't get out of my head how creepy this cult was. Ick

0.5 out of 10 Martha Marcy May Marlene Moronic
John from Cork, 27 Jul 2012
OMG was this the worst movie ever. Dragged out, purporting to tell the story in the silences. Hmmm a total snooze fest. Do not watch this movie, you will lose 2 hour of your life you can never regain.

What's it about....
Haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, a damaged woman struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult.
