The One I Love

A big part of my movie enjoyment is seeing how a movie is unfolds and the different directions a movie can go.  I love it when I can see the director taking the movie in ten different directions.  I also love it when a movie stays with me for days because of all of the questions that it raises.

This film is about a couple that is trying to save their failing marriage.  Their counselor (freaking Ted Danson!)  recommends that they try a weekend retreat to a place where many of his other patients had found success.  Sure enough, they get there and there is a record of all of the success stories.  And then….  I can’t say.  What I can say is that it is like no other film I’ve ever seen and it was amazing.  Elisabeth Moss was unbelievable in her “role” and the Duplass Brothers delivered another fantastic film.  This is one of my all-time favorite movies.
