The One I Love


By Debbie Elicksen.

The One I Love (2014) is listed as comedy, drama, and romance, but it seems more of a light psychological drama to me. It was directed by Charlie McDowell and written by Justin Lader.

A married couple drifting apart is encouraged by their therapist to spend time at a vacation home in order to rekindle their relationship. Each of them has a different reality of what is going on during their stay. They also appear to have split personalities and have different experiences with those split personalities. Neither couple recalls the same experience, only that the altered reality happens when they enter the guest house.

This has a bit like a light-hearted Outer Limits/Twilight Zone/Hitchcock flavor. Elisabeth Moss (Sophie) and Mark Duplass (Ethan) are exceptional in their roles. No matter what you classify it, you’ll enjoy it. Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen also star in the film. This movie gets three stars out of five.
