Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)

Directed by: Sean Durkin
Country: USA

Plot: Haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, a damaged woman struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult.
Quick comment: A disturbing 'indie' film. Teaches you a lesson by giving a creepy notion of how destructive a brainwash can be in one's life. An outstanding nightmare portrait that will make you feel unconfortable.
Relevant Awards: Directing award at the Sundance Film Festival, USA; Most promising filmmaker at the Chicago Film Critics Association awards, USA.
