"Martha Marcy Mae Marlene"
Pro: Similar to "Like Crazy" or "Shame," those who love, adore this Sundance drama. It could be a critic's group darling along with star Elizabeth Olsen who may be a shoe in for a best actress nomination.
Con: It may need some major critic prizes to break in (which is completely possible). It may just be too esoteric for the Academy at this point.
