Brit Marling, she’s from Another Earth. Writer, director, cult leader from the future. In guy pal Zal Batmanglij’s debut feature, Maggie (Marling’s latest self-written enigma) coos followers into submission with her velvety vocals. Namely, Peter, a journalist trying to expose her as a quack. Zal’s brother, Rostam, scores the film (doesn’t suck to have the Vampire Weekend genius around), but who choreographed that precocious patty-cake?
It’s like: Martha Marcy May Marlene with a trace of K-Pax.
Take: Your secret circle.
