Sundance Film Festival

The Refreshing Candor of Elizabeth Olsen

And one more thing about Elizabeth Olsen, the 21-year-old younger sister of famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley who stars in two buzzed-about films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the aforementioned (see previous post) MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE and the horror film SILENT HOUSE: Olsen, who goes by the nickname Lizzie and is being hailed as the 2011 festival’s “It” girl, has a knack for a catchy quote.

At a discussion following a screening of SILENT HOUSE on Friday, Olsen said the movie took more out of her than her festival double-debut has. “It was so exhausting,” she said of shooting SILENT HOUSE. “I got bad migraines from crying too much, and sinus infections from all the snot.” Refreshing candor, no?
