2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Charlie McDowell’s The One I Love

With a famous pair of acting parents, we imagine that his on-set apprenticeship qualifies as film school. The multi-talented (jury will be out on his first directing gig) Charlie McDowell (pictured above) shot in March of this year, and then he jumped on a book tour (Dear Girls Above Me) a couple of weeks later. Despite the busy schedule, this quirky comedy featuring trio Elisabeth Moss (will also be seen in Listen Up Philip), Ted Danson and Sundance favorite Mark Duplass should be in the can.

Gist: Written by Justin Lader and McDowell, this is about a couple (Moss and Duplass) trying to solve the problems plaguing their marriage take a romantic weekend getaway, only to discover a new set of problems waiting for them.

Production Co./Producers: Mel Eslyn (Touchy Feely)

Prediction: An outside shot at a Premieres category preem with SXSW keen on claiming another world preem that Sundance might pass on.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
