Continuing on from yesterday’s trend of Films That I’m Looking Forward To That Are Surprisingly Not Prometheus, here’s the trailer for Brit Marling’s new science-fiction-ish cult film, The Sound of My Voice, which follows a young couple who attempt to infiltrate a cult to disprove the leader’s outlandish claims that she is from the year 2054.
It looks like the type of slow burn thriller that I’ve always enjoyed, and based on Marling’s previous Sundance Festival winning effort, Another Earth, I am pretty sure that the story will be more than what meets they eye.
In SOUND OF MY VOICE, Peter (Christopher Denham) and Lorna (Nicole Vicius), a couple and documentary filmmaking team, infiltrate a mysterious group led by an enigmatic young woman named Maggie (Brit Marling), who claims she is from the future. Intent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the followers from her grip, Peter and Lorna start to question their objective and each other as they unravel the secrets of Maggie’s underworld.
Writer and star Marling apparently did quite a bit of research into cults in the Los Angeles area, and discovered that it was for more prevalent than most would expect. This of course comes as no surprise to anybody who has ever witnessed the drones of permanently-surprised botox-faced drones that occupy LA.
