'Silent House'


After making a big mark in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," Elizabeth Olsen - who's quickly transcending her identity as the sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley - meets the big challenge of largely holding the screen by herself in this thriller from "Open Water" makers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau.

The story unfolds in real time and apparently a single take, as Olsen plays a young woman trying to restore her family's lake house from vandalism ... but someone unexpected also might be there, and she can't get out or call for help. DVD extra: audio commentary by Kentis and Lau. **** (R: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
