If Anyone Can Reinvigorate the Romantic Comedy, It's Elisabeth Moss: The One I Love Trailer

By Cindy Davis | Trailers | July 17, 2014 | Comments ()


As far as I’m concerned, just as Peggy Olson has walked on by Don Draper, so has Elisabeth Moss practically stolen Mad Men out from under Jon Hamm. After her magnificent turn in Top of the Lake, I’m convinced Moss can do anything — even get me to want to watch a romantic comedy again. Starring opposite The Mindy Project’s Mark Duplass, the pair play a married couple looking to work out their issues under the guidance of their counselor (Ted Danson), who sends them on a weekend therapy getaway…and that’s when things get surrealistic (or as Rebecca calls it, “Twilight Zone-y”). The trailer looks like some quirkalicious fun, and I’m all for anything with a surrealistic twist.

Adorable, right? Intriguing, yes? The poster claims The One I Love reinvigorates the romantic comedy, and this is one soundbite I’m willing to swallow.


This is Charlie McDowell’s (Malcolm McDowell’s son) directorial feature debut; it’ll be in limited theaters August 15th.

The last romantic comedy Cindy Davis, (Twitter) watched was Hannibal.

    In. Super in. I love them both.

  • Hooves

    Doesn't seem that hard to pick up on the premise to me - that cottage gives them a chance to spend time with their ideal of the other person. So they're not technically cheating, since it is with their spouse - but it's not really their spouse per se. She doesn't want to leave because the marriage is finally perfect for her and he realizes the insanity of the whole thing and tries to get her to leave.

    Yeah, I have no idea what that was about, but now I feel like I need to.

  • troublesometots

    Finally a sequel to Cabin in the Woods!

  • denesteak

    yea that's the vibe I got too...

  • randomhookup

    The director's father gets mentioned but not his mother, Oscar-winner Mary Steenburgen?

  • Bananapanda

    Which is probably why stepfather Ted Danson is in it too...Mary Steenburgen is awesome!

  • Travis_J_Smith

    The trailer does a splendid job of making me wonder what the hell this raved-about premise actually is... but that's about it. I'll watch it, though, because you mention Charlie Kaufman, use the word "surreal," etc. and I'm game.

  • pajiba

    HOLY SHIT. I want this movie inside of me.

  • competitivenonfiction

  • emmalita
