I love a good romantic comedy so when I discovered The One I Love on Netflix one Saturday night (yes, I lead a thrilling life of movie-watching on my Saturday nights), I decided to give it a whirl. And it was really good! Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) are in the midst of marital trouble when they’re sent on a weekend retreat by their therapist. Only when they get to their destination they’re met with an unexpected surprise.
The One I Love kept me guessing up until the very end, and unlike other romantic comedies, it didn’t focus heavily on typical romantic themes but outlined the relationship between Ethan and Sophie in a very subtle way. Truth be told, I have quite the crush on Mark Duplass (which may or may not have been the catalyst for choosing to watch) and Elisabeth Moss plays the perfect Sophie – very soft-spoken and sweet, but borderline creepy in some scenes. Part mystery, part romantic comedy, it was a good flick I’d highly recommend for a date night.
