TIFF Teaser: Martha Marcy May Marlene, the creepy story of a Catskills cult
All the buzz for Martha Marcy May Marlene is going to be around Elizabeth Olsen, Mary Kate and Ashley’s little sis, playing a cult escapee. But we’re most excited for an appearance by one of our favourite character actors, John Hawkes. We’ve loved him in charming roles, like Sol Star on Deadwood and Richard in Me and You and Everyone We Know, and even in vaguely creepy ones, like Teardrop in Winter’s Bone (hello, Oscar nomination!). If anyone can make us love a menacing, charismatic cult leader, it’s him.
