'The One I Love' Shows Inventive Twist on Rom-Com

EYES IN Magazine Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk attended the Tribeca Film Festival and saw the red carpet performance of first-time Director Charlie McDowell's 'The One I Love.' Vivian says, "'The One I Love' is one of the most 'mind-boggling' films I have seen in a long time. Writer Justin Lader has managed to surprise both the audience and the actors of the film by making the 'Doppelganger concept' come alive onscreen, in the context of a couple trying to solve their relationship problems.

"Using innovative camera techniques makes the whole movie a surreal mystery with lots of funny moments on top of that. The acting of Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass is brilliant and will have lots of people - especially couples - talking about the film afterwards. The One I Love is a 'must see.' It will premiere in New York next August."

The One I Love

In Charlie McDowell’s refreshing and inventive twist on the love story, Ethan and Sophie escape to an idyllic country retreat in a last ditch attempt to save their ailing marriage. Sophie is attempting to forgive Ethan for an act of infidelity, straining to revive her affection for the man with whom she first fell in love. But what begins as a quiet opportunity to reconnect soon morphs into an unexplainable head-trip as their romantic retreat turns into an entirely different thing altogether. Starring Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss (in subtle, heartfelt performances) as a couple forced to confront both their relationship and their individual self-perception in an impossibly unique way, The One I Love turns the romantic comedy on its ear. ~Liza Domnitz (Tribeca Film Festival)
