Brit Marling: Breakout star of 2011
Posted on January 1, 2012
The new Indie “It Girl” I’ve seen her been called. Kinda like Parker Posey was in the ’90s?
Brit Marling earned the moniker based on a couple award-winning and critically acclaimed indie films from the past year, Another Earth and Sound of My Voice.
I’ve seen Another Earth, which is very good. Brit co-stars with the guy who played Ethan, one of the “Others” in Lost.
Two planet Earths and the best thing about that – it means two Brit Marlings.
Brit proves my part that you can be a really cute gal and look amazing in janitorial clothes.
Her other film, Sound of My Voice, I have not seen yet. It probably played in Chicago, ever so briefly, before I caught on to it. And it certainly didn’t play in Northwest Indiana because they don’t allow such films there (you know – interesting, arty indie-type films).
Brit plays Maggie, a supposedly time-traveling cult leader – how hot is that?
Last, but not least, is Brit’s guest appearance early in ’11 as Britta’s lesbian friend Paige in Community. Need I say more?
Brit’s a smart gal (Georgetown graduate – economics) and she’s got talent. Look forward to more Marling in ’12.
UPDATE (Feb ’12): Sound of My Voice will be released this April. Watch the first ominous 12 minutes.
