Amid the scrum of Sundance premieres, we often lose track of a fairly large number of titles when they finally emerge in theaters six months down the line. Sometimes, the quieter ones eventually make the biggest splash, and while not every picture making its way out of Park City winds up a real gem, a few lucky ones do impress. That includes “The One I Love,” which was plucked up by RADiUS-TWC.
Its greatest asset: there’s a central mystery that no one wants to reveal. Thus the trailer and all the marketing materials are deliberately vague, as are interviews about the movie. (TOH! talked to Elisabeth Moss here.) How refreshing.
Moss and improv master Mark Duplass worked collaboratively with rookie director Charlie McDowell (son of Malcolm) and Justin Lader on this twisted romantic comedy. Check out this first trailer, which reveals that “Love” is not your typical relationship drama. Instead some other dimension seems to be involved. (See an early clip here.)
“The One I Love” will enter limited release on August 15, courtesy of RADiUS-TWC. Have a peek below:
