Top 3 Critics’ Picks In Theaters this August: Charlie McDowell’s The One I Love

The One I Love – Charlie McDowell
Limited Release – August 22nd
Distributor: RADiUS-TWC

Awards & Fests: Premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and has been programmed at a slew of American indie fests such as Dallas, Sarasota, Seattle and Traverse.

Variety critic Geoff Berkshire’s glowing review makes the mention of great perfs from the onscreen pair, surprising since “screenwriter Justin Lader only supplied a 50-page script and suggested dialogue, leaving Duplass and Moss to improvise a large percentage of the lines.”
