The Olsen twins’ sister Elizabeth stars in new film ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ and has everybody talking about her stellar acting skills!

Elizabeth Olsen‘s performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene was the talk of Sundance this year and now we can see why! Mary-Kate and Ashley‘s sister gives a chilling portrayal of a girl who escapes an abusive cult but then must deal with the psychological consequences. Elizabeth blows us away in this trailer!

The thriller is written and directed by Sean Durkin and also stars John Hawkes as the cult leader, Sarah Paulson as Elizabeth’s on-screen sister and Hugh Dancy as her sister’s husband. The haunting trailer shows a damaged Martha (Elizabeth) trying to repair her life and attempting to distinguish her nightmares from reality.

Elizabeth has spent years studying acting, graduating from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School, and it shows. Next up is Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding with Chace Crawford and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, which she has already finished filming.

What do you think of the trailer? Do you think Elizabeth is proving to be a better actress than her older sisters?
