Elizabeth Olsen House

March 9, 2012 by staff 

Elizabeth Olsen House, After filming wrapped on her debut feature “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” the intense psychological drama in which Elizabeth Olsen played a mentally-disturbed fugitive from a bizarre cult, the actress could have opted for a little R&R to recoup. Instead, three weeks later, Olsen jumped into her next starring role as Sarah, the distraught heroine of “Silent House,” about a young woman trapped inside a creepy mansion where strange things are afoot.

“I was just thankful that someone was offering me another movie,” says Olsen, who turned 23 in February. “But it turned out to be a lot harder than I expected. It’s very difficult to create a character arc and not repeat any beats in a movie where things just keep getting worse and worse for an hour and a half.”

Like the 2010 Uruguayan chiller that inspired it, “Silent House” unfolds in real time and seems to have been filmed in one single uninterrupted take. But Olsen confides the movie is actually comprised of 13 shots, cleverly edited together so you can’t see the seams.

“The hardest one of all the takes was the seventh,” she says. “It starts with me running up from the basement, out of the house, down the street, into a car and then back into the house. It took us several days to get that one right.”

Olsen has already completed three more films due for release in 2012, appearing opposite the likes of Robert DeNiro, Zac Efron and Jane Fonda. At the end of March, she begins work on “Kill Your Darlings,” the story of a murder that involved Beat generation poets Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.

“I play Edie Parker, and even though I’m in only four scenes, I’ve been doing so much research on her that I feel like we’re making her autobiography,” Olsen says. “The script by John Krokidas is just incredible, and the cast (which includes Daniel Radcliffe, Ben Foster, Jack Huston and Michael C. Hall) is just incredible. It’s going to be a really cool film.”
