'The One I Love's First Trailer Shows Elizabeth Moss & Mark Duplass In Some Interdimensional Hijinks — VIDEO
The first trailer for Mark Duplass and Elizabeth Moss' new film The One I Love seems to be marketing a romantic comedy with a genuinely crazy twist. And considering there's talk of different dimensions and Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf within the two-minute trailer, I'd have to say I believe it. After all, let's not forget that this is a movie brought to us by the same people who made Safety Not Guaranteed. Written by Justin Lader and directed by Charlie McDowell, The One I Love was an official selection at both the Tribeca Film Festival and Sundance, and was filmed from a 50-page script with Moss and Duplass encouraged to improvise the rest.
Whereas Safety Not Guaranteed was pretty straightforward with its premise — a dude (Mark Duplass) recruits a young woman (Aubrey Plaza) to train to go back in time with him, and romance and self-discovery ensue — The One I Love seems to be playing more coy with its surrealist twists so far. Still, from what I can gather, it involves marital troubles, marital revitalization, and a house that may or may not lead to another dimension in which this married couple would like to play.
Here's the official synopsis:
On the brink of separation, Ethan and Sophie escape to a beautiful vacation house for a weekend getaway in an attempt to save their marriage. What begins as a romantic and fun retreat soon becomes surreal when an unexpected discovery forces the two to examine themselves, their relationship, and their future.
No mention of dimensions or mysterious houses, but watch the trailer and you'll definitely see what I'm talking about.
