SIFF Sighting: THE ONE I LOVE (Romantic Comedy; USA)
Though Ethan gives re-igniting their flame a college try, Sophie still isn't past their troubles, so they agree to couples' therapy.
Their shrink (Ted Danson, perfect for the part) assigns them a weekend away to work on their issues and that's when things start to get weird.
I can't go any further without completely spoiling the film, so I'll just say this is hilarious, thought-provoking, confusing, charming and odd. First-time screenwriter Justin Lader does an incredible job of entertaining while floating the big lingering questions, and all the while making the audience hungry for bacon.
I can't wait until this is released in theaters. I'll be first in line to see it again.
THE ONE I LOVE screened at the 40th Seattle International Film Festival.
