There are several references to the work of singer-songwriter, Jackson C. Frank. John Hawkes plays "Marcy's song" in the film, while "Marlene" is played over the credits. It can be assumed that John Hawkes' character, Patrick, fabricated the names Marcy May and Marlene from these songs. See more »

Call me non artistic or unenlightened...but this is by far the worst movie I have ever seen. I forced myself to sit through 2 hours of flashbacks which were hard to separate from non flashbacks hoping to get an explanation... Perhaps an ending. I got neither....and that was an excruciating two hours. I understand the psychological trauma of abuse and I know this is what the movie revolved around but I did not feel it had a plot even...and definitely no conclusion. It just is not the psychological thriller it was purported to be. It is not a thriller. I can say I hope to see Elizabeth Olsen in a different movie. I think she does have talent and is the reason I didn't just turn it off in the first 15 minutes.
