Throughout Sound of My Voice, in select theaters today, the big mystery is whether this beautiful, delicate cult leader is from the future, or just a big fake. Her followers are willing to do any absurd thing she demands of them, in exchange for a few morsels of future wisdom.
You may have seen female cult leader Brit Marling luring her special flock of followers into her creepy basement in indie darling Sound of My Voice. But this two-time scifi screenwriter (Sound of My Voice and Another Earth) is more than just an actor and the face of indie SF.
This week sees the big-screen debut of Sound of My Voice, the indie sensation centered around a mysterious cult leader (Brit Marling) who claims to be from the future.
What if you were introduced to a spiritual guru who claimed to have traveled back in time from the year 2054? What would it take to make you believe her? Those are some of the questions raised by The Sound of My Voice, the Sundance sensation that's coming to select theaters on April 27.
We've been excited about Sound of My Voice ever since it drew rave reactions at Sundance. Now you can check out the first trailer, watch the movie's first 12 minutes, and get our spoiler-y report from the movie's Wonder-Con panel.
In the new movie Another Earth, a duplicate of our own planet appears from the far side of the sun, and starts moving towards "our" Earth. This could be the set-up for a disaster movie, or a story of war between Earths.
Chances are, you've been hearing about Another Earth for months. It's the science fiction film with the tiny budget that wowed Sundance and won the Sloane Award. It's the introspective movie with a huge concept. It's a triumph of storytelling over razzle-dazzle.
