Peter and Lorna infiltrate a cult, determined to expose its leader, Maggie (a mesmerizing Brit Marling), as a fraud. A compelling, but elusive young woman claiming to be from 2054, she lives in a sterile, Zen-like environment, where she waves a bleak story of coming civil wars to her followers. But Peter’s eagerness to expose Maggie cools as he is increasingly drawn to her, after she effortlessly uncovers a few unexpected sunbeam, a gifted child shines a bit of light on the deepening mystery as the film draws to an abrupt, doubling end.
Voice is about the anguish of letting go of empirical reality. It neither confirms nor denies its divergent views, leaving us somewhere in a graceful zone of twilight. Difficult to resist the temptation to go back and look for clues and connections missed the first time round. Co-scripted with Marling (Another Earth), Sound of My Voice is Zal Batmanglij directional feature debut.
