About this movie

In her stunning feature film debut, Elizabeth Olsen delivers an electrifying, star-is-born performance in this gripping psychological thriller that is far and away one of the year's best! After escaping from a dangerous cult and the watchful eye of its charismatic leader (Academy Award® Nominee John Hawkes), 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.

Not my kind of movie. I thought it was boring. I understand why they called it a psychological thriller, but there wasn't much thrill to it. Very unsatisfying ending. I personally would not recommend it to anyone.

No ending, don't waste your time, leaves you with an irritating unresolved feeling. A shame because the acting was good, it had the potential to be an excellent film.

Wish it had a title that was marketable. Good acting, scary what mob mentality is and does.
