Lizzie Olsen

Lizzie Olsen, “This is called” Silent House ‘, “but the film is even greater buzz around the actress who plays the terrified girl – Elizabeth Olsen – and it is quickly turning into small groups to Sundance star. Olsen is a 21-year senior at NYU Film School and the younger sister of Ashley and Mary-Kate. Lizzie Olsen has two films at Sundance. It is also another psychological thriller called “Martha Macy Marlene May, and becomes much attention to each one. Olsen is in every shot of “Silent House”, since the camera follows in a single blow throughout the movie, either behind or in front of her shoulder, she captures the fear increases, panic and hysteria that supports effectively through the film 90 minutes. Something of her candor and affect comparisons are winning Maggie Gyllenhaal, rather than her sisters.

So why have not we seen her before? The small, green-eyed actress, smiled shyly when he spoke just outside the projection of “Silent House”. “I have acted, but at school, training and reportories,” she said. “I started to audition a year ago.

(Okay, I’m the only one who finds it funny that the first film to be seen Olsen is “Silent House”?)

Filmmakers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau – who fired the single camera thriller “Open Water” a few years ago – shot “Silent House” in 5 weeks in New Rochelle, based on a Uruguayan film of the same name. It is technically very difficult, because each shot was long and complex with a long list of production staff and actors to work together and maintain the correct picture.

This is particularly true of Martha Marcy Marlene May, in which stars 21-year Olsen as a young woman who escapes a disturbing, violent cult led by a psychopath talker (Winter’s Bone’s John Hawkes). The title refers to different names, it is given in worship – part of the strategy of destabilization of her psyche – and the film is divided between its efforts to regain a normal life while living with her sister and her flash- back to its earliest days of indoctrination and shocking acts she witnessed.

While the film goes to extremes, Olsen said he was rooted in real experiences of people who were in abusive cults, including a friend of Martha Marcy filmmaker Sean Durkin. “It’s not something that fictitious exaggerated,” said Olsen, after the first screening. “I know some people who, when I spoke to this film were like,” My parents were in a cult, and I am born in cults, and then we fled. “It’s not that crazy, strange idea. This is actually rooted in something that is real, it is taboo. ” What is ironic is the two films are a sort of … twins. In Silent House, her character is another young woman terrorized, harboring secrets frightening, and the struggle to escape an overwhelming terror. The two women spend a lot of time running, crying and gasping for breath as they fled their respective horrors.

Like Jennifer Lawrence erupted at Sundance last year as a fresh, young talented actress intimidating, and Carey Mulligan was the previous year, Olsen is considered one of the great discoveries, this time. Nobody thinks she looks like her famous sister, though. It is much more frequently compared to Maggie Gyllenhaal and Vera Farmiga. Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of famous twins, made her breakthrough indie film festival with two films, the intense drama cult evacuation Martha Marcy Marlene May (photo below left) and the creepy psychological thriller Silent House (photo top left) – and while her name is associated with the goofy countless films, granddaughter of Mary-Kate and Ashley, neither one is what you call “family.” (Unless you ‘re the Manson family.)
