Sound of my Voice is an indie thriller that got rave reviews at Sundance in 2011 and will be in theaters April 27th. The plot: two people infiltrate a cult to make a secret documentary about its leader Maggie, who claims to be from the future. The investigative journalists, Peter and Lorna, firmly believe she is a fraud – a powerful, manipulative, seductive fraud that hoodwinked a bunch of true believers by claiming to be sent back from the year 2054 to protect the chosen ones from the horrible future that awaits them (presumably Skynet). As they spend more and more time with Maggie and Chosen Ones (side note: could be a cool band name), a rift begins to form – with Peter beginning to believe Maggie’s story and Lorna being jealous that Peter maybe has a crush on Maggie. So, is the whole thing a scam? Is Maggie delusional? Could she for real? We’ll find out (or maybe not – reviews from Sundance promise that the movie will leave you wondering, long after it’s over)!
Maggie is played by Brit Marling who killed it at Sundance last year, starring in not one but two movies which she also co-wrote and co-produced. That’s a lot of talent. Peter and Lorna are played by Christopher Denham and Nicole Vicius, respectively, who both have had minor parts in lots of movies. Maybe this will be their big break. Three stars!
Sound of My Voice hits theaters theaters on April 27th.
