RADiUS-TWC has released the first The One I Love trailer for director Charlie McDowell’s offbeat debut. The film stars Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass as a couple on the brink of separation who escape to a vacation house for a weekend getaway. Soon after arriving, however, they encounter an unexpected discovery that forces them to examine themselves, their relationship, and their future. This is one of the films I was disappointed to miss at the Sundance Film Festival, as I heard only great things from those that caught it. Moreover, I was told it’s best to go in without knowing the “twist” to the premise that occurs earlier in the film. Thankfully, this trailer teases the intriguing story without giving anything away. I’m definitely looking forward to catching this one next month.
Hit the jump to watch the The One I Love trailer. The film also stars Ted Danson and will be released on VOD on August 1st and in select theaters on August 22nd.
