Oscarweb Round-up: 'Martha Marcy' media blitz
Boy is there nothing out there. It's quiet. Really quiet. Today's round-up was a scraping the barrel kind of thing. Yikes. The media blitz for "Martha Marcy May Marlene" is really picking up steam, though, as the film is set for release next week. I'll be chatting with some of the talent today and look forward to it. It's still one of the most accomplished films of the year, with a stellar performance from Elizabeth Olsen -- one of the great screen debuts. Steven Zeitchik recently sat down with the ingenue.
