Elizabeth Olsen is currently going from strength to strength. After appearing in indie darlings such as MARTHA, MARCY, MAY, MARLENE and KILL YOUR DARLINGS, she’s hooked upcoming roles in big blockbusters GODZILLA and THE AVENGERS; AGE OF ULTRON. Another of her upcoming films is IN SECRET in which she plays a young woman forced into a marriage that provides her with no sexual satisfaction whatsoever. Tom Felon plays her loveless husband who makes the big mistake of introducing Olsen to his childhood friend, played by Oscar Isaac. Isaac and Olsen embark on a passionate affair and are soon plotting the murder of Felton’s character. Unfortunately, Felton’s mother (Jessica Lange) becomes increasingly suspicious and Olsen is swamped by guilt.
It looks like a pretty good period thriller with some strong performances. Unfortunately, this trailer gives away a hell of a lot of plot and the sexless marriage parts seem similar to the Danish film A ROYAL AFFAIR. Still, when Lange is about, you stand up and take notice. The film stars Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Felton, Oscar Isaac, Jessica Lange, John Kavanagh, Mackenzie Crook, and Matt Lucas.
IN SECRET is released in the UK on May 16th.
