The younger sister of famous twin fashion designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Elizabeth Olsen, is set to appear in two films that make their premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. And the movies are a far cry from the lighter fare that her sisters are famous for, tackling subjects like sexual abuse and religious cults.
The two movies, Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene, have resulted in positive reviews for the newcomer actress. Her next role is in a movie called Red Lights, a paranormal thriller with Robert De Niro. Between films, Elizabeth is a student at New York University, pursuing a degree in psychology.
