The Mary Sue Interviews Brit Marling, Patricia Clarkson, Alexander Skarsgård, & Ellen Page Of The East

Screenwriter/actress Brit Marling has returned with another thought-provoking film with director Zal Batmanglij. The East, open in limited release today, stars Marling, Patricia Clarkson, Alexander Skarsgård, and Ellen Page in a spy thriller based around corporate poisonings and the freeganism movement. The Mary Sue was invited to a roundtable discussion with the actors and the director recently, and spoke with them about whether or not this is a political film, women in Hollywood, and what it was like living without entertainment and soap.

Brit Marling’s New Film Features Ellen Page As A Member Of An Anonymous-Like Group [TRAILER]

We’ve reviewed two of Brit Marling’s films on The Mary Sue. Another Earth left me with deep thoughts, while The Sound of My Voice left me wanting more. Marling’s new outing has her rejoining her Voice director Zal Batmanglij for The East. She plays an “operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele” while an anarchist group works to reveal the corporations shady practices. Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page also star as members of the seemingly fictional take on Anonymous.

Would You Fall Prey To The Sound Of My Voice?

As soon as I heard the genius behind the film Another Earth was involved in making another pseudo-science fiction movie I knew I had to see it immediately. Brit Marling is back with a film called Sound of My Voice about a woman, who may or may not be a time traveler, who gathers believers like a cultist. Fox Searchlight was gracious enough to let us into an early screening, read on to find out more about the movie and whether or not its worth a watch.

Contemplating Another Earth

With the recent discovery of Kepler-22b (and others like it), it’s not really far fetched to start thinking about what life would be like on another planet similar to our Earth. But what if there were another planet out there that was identical to Earth in every way? Right down to there being another you. That is the premise of Another Earth, winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, but it’s also a lot more than that. Hit the jump for the trailer and my review.
