The ‘folded and creased’ one-sheet look may have been played out a few years ago, but what I really like about this particular teaser poster is the simplicity of its design, otherwise. A secret handshake could mean a coming of age film along the lines of Wes Anderson or Stand By me, or it could movie about a deaf person, perhaps. The key thing is that simply by looking at the poster, I’m thinking about it. In this case Brit Marling (Another Earth) stars in and co-writes what appears to be a Sundance film in the same territory as Martha Marcy May Marlene. Cults, secret hand-shakes. The Sound of My Voice Intrigued? Yep.
A journalist and his girlfriend get pulled in while they investigate a cult whose leader claims to be from the future.
