  • Chris Barsanti @ Film Racket
    • Excerpt: … [a] willowy and romantic science-fiction two-hander with a Twilight Zone twist about a couple with marriage problems whose sojourn at a therapeutic retreat takes a quirky turn.
  • Nicholas Bell @
    • Excerpt: both exceptional writing and superb performances elevate this film into an irregular realm of its own.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @
    • Excerpt: A remarkable, creative, and thought-provoking drama about treasuring love and sustaining marriage.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: One stunning location, two main stars, family ties and a script that is a narcissistic science fiction twist on 1945’s Dorothy McGuire and Robert Younger starrer “The Enchanted Cottage” is the means to a clever directorial debut by Charlie McDowell…
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: This is smart filmmaking, not only for the inventiveness of Lader’s central conceit but also for the dexterity from all involved to keep it grounded in reality.
  • Dustin Jansick @ Way Too Indie
    • Excerpt: An innovative way to demonstrate how relationships tend to lose their spark over time.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: I guarantee you the conversation in the car on the way home will be far more profound than the one you had on the way there.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: The One I Love has an inspired conceit that depends all on the element of surprise and its insight into interpersonal relationships. 
  • Kristy Puchko @
    • Excerpt: It’s happened to all of us. Everyone is raving about a movie with a “big twist.” You totally mean to see it. And right before you do, some jackass accidentally drops the bomb.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: An indie with an intriguing premise, The One I Love is a smart and surprising take on the romantic comedy. The script by Joe Lader adds an interesting dimension to the set-up of a troubled couple on a weekend retreat, one that the trailer only hints at and that I’ve seen other venues treat as a spoiler.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Uses what initially seems a slight, even ludicrous conceit to treat of deeper relationship issues in an intelligent, sophisticated way.
