The Paranoia In ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene Returns’ In February On Blu-ray/DVD

I might have some more to say about this film next week, when my top 10 films list comes out, but in the meantime, word has hit that Martha Marcy May Marlene will be arriving on Blu-ray and DVD February 21, 2012.  Besides having one of the most fun titles to say out loud, Martha Marcy May Marlene is a tense psychological thriller revolving around a young girl, Martha (a fantastic Elizabeth Olsen) who has escaped a cult.  The film moves through a nonlinear timeline, exploring Martha’s fragile psyche, as she contends with both the life she lived and the readjusting to a regular society.  It is a wonderfully creepy film in a very low-key sense and I am looking forward to checking it out again when it arrives on Blu-ray.  Read on to find more from the official press release and to learn out more about the special features present on the disc.

GET CAPTIVATED BY ELIZABETH OLSEN IN THE GRIPPING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER

Featuring the Award Winning Short Film “Mary Last Seen”

Only On Blu-ray and DVD February 21


Los Angeles, CA (December 20, 2011) – From 2011 Sundance Film Festival “Best Director” winner Sean Durkin, in his feature film debut, and featuring breakout star Elizabeth Olsen in her “Best Female Lead” Film Independent Spirit Award nominated role, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE arrives on Blu-ray and DVD February 21 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

After escaping from a dangerous cult and the watchful eye of its charismatic leader, a young woman named Martha (Olsen) tries to reclaim a normal life with her family. But the haunting memories from Martha’s past trigger a chilling paranoia — and nowhere seems safe as the fragile line between her reality and delusions begin to blur.

Supported by unforgettable powerhouse performances from Academy Award® nominee John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone, American Gangster) and Sarah Paulson (Down With Love, What Women Want), the MARTHA MARCY MARY MARLENE Blu-ray and DVD is rich with feature special features, including “Mary Last Seen,” the chilling short film by writer/director Durkin that started it all.

Pre-book date is January 25.
