ELIZABETH OLSEN SCREENS ‘MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE’ AT NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL

Elizabeth Olsen looked every bit the movie star that she is as she attended the 49th annual New York Film Festival presentation of Martha Marcy May Marlene at Alice Tully Hall in New York City on Tuesday (October 11).

Joined by co-star Hugh Dancy, the 22-year-old actress dazzled in a black gown featuring a striking high neck as she screening her new Sean Durkin-directed psychological drama about a damaged woman who struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult.

The movie was a standout at last winter’s Sundance Film Festival, and Ms. Olsen, who also starred in a second film at the festival, Silent House (an art-house horror film scheduled for 2012), impressed critics and industry insiders alike, and was quickly tagged the “it girl” of the festival.

And it seems the sky is the limit for Elizabeth. She is set to star in a string of films new — including Red Lights, a supernatural drama featuring Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver, and Liberal Arts, a comic drama with Zac Efron and Josh Radnor. And did we mention that she’s currently attending New York University, where she’s a senior majoring in theater at the Tisch School of the Arts? Elizabeth anticipates graduating this winter or spring.

Besides getting more movie roles, Ms. Olsen says she was eager to land a meaty theater role. Her dream? “I want to play Ophelia in Hamlet, Masha in Three Sisters and, really, really later in life, I’d love to play Mary Tyrone in Long Day’s Journey.”
