THE ONE I LOVE

This is a weird little movie. And, I like it.

Relative newcomers, director Charlie McDowell and writer Justin Lader, team up with two terrific and experienced actors, Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass, in a story I can’t tell you about.

See, the plot needs to be a surprise for the movie to unfold as it must to engage you.

I can tell you that Moss and Duplass play a married couple going through a rough patch. When their marriage therapist (Ted Danson) sends them away for a weekend, things get freaky.

The film is not as outrageous as Being John Malkovich or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and neither are the metaphysical elements as watered down as it is in some of the Woody Allen movies. There is some edge here and some unexpected elements, which is refreshing.

Overall, though, it’s the fine performances by Moss and Duplass that really sell the concept.

Take a look and see what you think; then, we can talk about it.
