HollywoodLife.com attended the premiere of Fox Searchlight Pictures’ new film and it’s phenomenal — it’ll leave you on the edge of your seat the entire time! Read on to find out why!
Do you need a really good movie for you and your beau but not the typical chick flick? I saw such a great movie at the MoMA on a rainy NYC night and I never expected to be completely gripped for 85 minutes. The Peggy Siegal Company hosted the NYC screening of Sound Of My Voice along with Gucci and it fabulous — I’ll tell you why.
The film written by Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling is about a journalist who decides to go undercover in a cult with a hidden camera. The guy’s name is Peter [Christopher Denham], and he along with his girlfriend Lorna [Nicole Vicius], try to expose this corrupt leader who lives outside of LA in the basement of a middle class home.
When you picture a cult leader you probably think of some creepy old man trying to get everyone to drink the red punch, right? Well much to my surprise, it was a gorgeous girl named Maggie [Marling] who had the entire theater mesmerized.
Maggie claims that she’s from the future, 2054 and she’s come back to bring others back with her. Her story at first sounds insane but then you start to really believe her and even Peter and his girlfriend Lorna start to struggle with separating their perceived reality with what Maggie is saying. Whether it’s watching the soon-to-be cult members throw up in unison, or eat a worm while listening to this gorgeous twenty something tell them magical stories of their future lives — you start to question your own life.
But when Maggie asks for Peter to bring her an 8-year-old girl named Abigail Pritchett [Avery Pohl] that’s when the movie takes a turn. You won’t believe what happens and the film will leave you with a million questions.
There was a Q&A after the film with Marling and Batmanglij and they refused to give the audience straight answers which makes me want to watch this film again! The cast and other A-listers headed to the Dream Downtown’s Electric Room to discuss the film further and it left everyone buzzing.
You must see The Sound of My Voice when it hits theaters April 27.
