Debuting screenwriter Justin Lader has found an honest and intriguing way to investigate the reality of fading love and attraction in the Sundance hit “The One I Live.” In the newly released trailer, released by RADiUS-TWC, stars Mark Duplass (“Safety Not Guaranteed,” “The League”) and Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men,””Top of the Lake”) throw shit around, yell and smile politely. It’s the “perfect weekend” or maybe “some weird version of ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.'” Who knows?
The highly anticipated directorial debut from author Charlie McDowell follows a couple of the rocks, Ethan (Duplass) and Sophie (Moss), who go on vacation one weekend to save their marriage. Things, however, don’t go exactly to plan. Their romantic getaway slowly transforms into a surreal experience when a discovery leads both to question love, life and their future.
“The One I Love” is slated for release in theaters August 22 and On VOD August 1. Check out the trailer and a poster for the film below:
