Pleasanton, Calif. A romantic thriller! …and just in time for spring. The next movie screening in the Firehouse Arts Center’s “Thrill Rides” independent film series is set for Wednesday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. THE ONE I LOVE (2014, rated R, 101 minutes), is a quirky romance/mystery plus fantasy/thriller starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men’s “Peggy”), Mark Duplass (most recently seen in film The Lazarus Effect, 2015), and Ted Danson (yep, that Ted Danson of Cheers and CSI fame).
Come a few minutes early to enjoy some fun trivia about the film. Free popcorn! Soda and snacks are available to purchase at the lobby concessions bay, and can be taken inside the theater. (No outside food or beverages are permitted.)
Struggling with a marriage on the brink of falling apart, couple Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) escape for a weekend on the advice of their long-time therapist (Ted Danson). Surreal experiences ensue…enough said. The film was dubbed an “American psychological thriller” at its Sundance Film Festival premiere in January 2014. Screenwriter Justin Lader was nominated for Best First Screenplay.
Washington Post film critic Michael O’Sullivan: “It’s clever — at times almost too clever for its own good — but also a refreshingly grown-up departure from the usual mindless fare of summer.”
