THE ONE I LOVE is a challenge to discuss without spoiling a good deal of the fun. Boasting spectacular performances from Mark Duplass (The League, Safety Not Guaranteed) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, Top of the Lake) as a husband and wife on the brink of separation, this incredibly assured directorial debut of Charlie McDowell essentially turns the idea of a two-hander upside down and inside out. Such a smart, crowd-pleasing entertainment deserves a distrib savvy enough to navigate a release without giving away the central twist of the premise in the marketing.
"The production is smooth and beautiful, with McDowell displaying a directorial confidence that belies his beginner status, an accomplishment boosted by Doug Emmett’s smoothly flattering cinematography."
