Elisabeth Moss, Mark Duplass debate their options in 'The One I Love'

The One I Love opens with a couple in therapy. Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) have lost their spark, along with some trust, and are trying their best to figure things out. So when their therapist (Ted Danson) recommends going on an idyllic retreat that he credits with reigniting the relationships of many of his patients, Sophie and Ethan jump at the chance.

“When they get there, weird sh– happens,” first time director Charlie McDowell told EW after the film’s premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. To reveal any more would ruin the fun—but EW has a perfectly non-spoilery clip of the flustered couple debating whether to stay or leave the bizarre situation in which they’ve found themselves. Watch it below.

Video: Odd thing happens to Elisabeth Moss in cryptic 'One I Love' trailer

Many romantic comedies make love out to be some sort of beautiful, universal mystery. The One I Love turns it into a literal mystery—or something. Frankly, it’s really hard to tell from the trailer.

Starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed) as a couple that journeys to a secluded romantic retreat, The One I Love promises a shocking twist in the midst of their fairly ordinary relationship. Again, that’s what the trailer implies—first-time feature director Charlie McDowell’s not really giving much away.

Elisabeth Moss and Jason Schwartzman comedy 'Listen Up Philip' gets an October release date

This October, we’ll all get a chance to find out what Philip has to say—and what people have to say to him.

Variety reports that Tribeca Film has acquired North American rights to Alex Ross Perry’s dark comedy Listen Up Philip. The film stars Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore) as an abrasive novelist in a collapsing relationship with his photographer girlfriend, Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men). Along the way, Philip also faces off with his literary idol, Jonathan Pryce (Brazil) and the man’s daughter, Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad).

Perry, a 2006 NYU Film grad, gained acclaim for his sophomore feature The Color Wheel. Most recently, he brought Philip to a premiere at Sundance in January. The film will open to wider audiences beginning on October 17, with video-on-demand options available on Oct. 21.

Moss previously told EW about her admiration for Schwartzman’s performance in the film: “Jason has this knack for playing characters who are maybe not necessarily that likable. He doesn’t try to make them likable, but there’s something about the way he is that makes you just want to watch him. You’re interested in what his character’s doing even if he’s being an asshole.”

RADiUS-TWC acquires worldwide rights to 'The One I Love'

Director Charlie McDowell is starting his feature film career on a good note: RADiUS-TWC nabbed the rights to his debut The One I Love, which premiered at Sundance Tuesday night.

The film focuses on Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss), a married couple who go on a retreat to try to sort out some problems. This isn’t an ordinary romantic comedy though: Things get weird. No one knows how weird though, because the film’s cast and crew are keeping the bizarre twist a secret.

Written by Justin Lader, The One I Love is slated for a fourth quarter 2014 release. 

Sundance 2014: You're not supposed to know anything about 'The One I Love'

The One I Love is Charlie McDowell’s feature directorial debut. It stars Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass as a broken couple who go on a retreat to an idyllic home at the urging of their therapist (played by McDowell’s stepfather, Ted Danson) in an attempt to salvage their relationship. And that’s the only thing you should know about it going in.

“I think we just felt like the movie would play so much better the less you knew about it. That’s why we sort of hinted more at the tone of it. We just felt like from the very beginning that was the right way to approach it,” McDowell, who also wrote Dear Girls Above Me, told EW.

“We’re going to do our best to maintain that for audiences,” Duplass, who also serves as a producer, added the morning after the film’s premiere. “We’re going to ask and hope that people be respectful and we’ll see what happens.”

Sundance 2014: 'The One I Love' is 'more than just a couple fighting' -- VIDEO

The-One-I-Love

Charlie McDowell’s The One I Love stars Top of the Lake‘s Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed) as a troubled couple struggling with their marriage. The pair embark on a weekend trip in an attempt to fix their relationship only to find themselves faced with an unusual dilemma along the way.

Though McDowell, Moss, and Duplass are keeping tight-lipped as to what unusual situation transpires in the film, McDowell did tease that it’s a pretty big turn that happens early on in the film.

Sundance 2014: Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass try not to fight in 'The One I Love' -- VIDEO

ONE-I-LOVE-MOSS.jpg

The One I Love resembles a certain type of Sundance movie on its surface, especially since it stars Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss and indie filmmaker (and The League funny man) Mark Duplass as a married couple on the verge of separation. But not everything is as it seems in Charlie McDowell’s movie, which premieres at Sundance on Tuesday, Jan. 21. The couple’s therapist (Ted Danson) sends them on a weekend retreat, which seems idyllic but quickly turns weird. Perhaps otherworldly. “The most exciting thing about this movie is that there’s a very unexpected twist as to what you think this movie will be, and it happens very early on in the film,” says Duplass, who also executive produced. “Lizzie and I are predominately known for doing in-depth personal relationship type films and TV, and we wanted to do something that at once embodied and at the same time flipped that on its head.”

So what’s the twist?

Duplass won’t say, though in the video clip below, his character Ethan seems to be acting as though the wife he went to bed with is not the same woman who’s cooking him breakfast.

McDowell, whose parents are the actors Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen, was also challenged by Duplass’s cryptic brevity. The producer pitched the seed of a plot in a one-sentence email. “This was the first time that I gave so very little information of what I thought the movie could be and about, kind of purposely,” says Duplass. “That initial concept I gave him was, ‘Okay, here’s about nine words. There’s something interesting in here. Can you build a movie out of it?’ And he totally did it.”

Sundance 2014: Elisabeth Moss tells Jason Schwartzman he's impossible to live with in 'Listen Up Philip' trailer

Philip is not for everyone.

An accomplished novelist, and world-class narcissist, the lead character (portrayed by Jason Schwartzman) of director Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip at least leaves quite an impression on the people he encounters, whether they’re his literary idols, his ex-girlfriends, random photo assistants, or the girl who happens to be living at the country house he retreats to.

In the first teaser for Perry’s third feature, premiering at Sundance on Jan. 20, we’re treated to bits from the supporting characters in his life. Some are reaching out to help, some are having heartfelt conversations, and some are just telling him to back off, but all are looking straight into the camera — putting the viewer in Philip’s place. Take a look after the jump.

Sundance 2014: Jason Schwartzman channels a jerk in 'Listen Up Philip' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Philip is not the most likable guy. In the first few seconds of director Alex Ross Perry’s film, Listen Up Philip (premiering at Sundance on Jan. 20), we see Philip (Jason Schwartzman) rushing down a New York street as a narrator (Eric Bogosian) explains that he’s “characteristically not in a hurry, but perpetually enraged by slow foot traffic before him.”

It’s the perfect intro to the character that you’re about to spend the next 108 minutes with as the embittered, narcissistic writer navigates his life, the stresses behind the release of his second novel, and his crumbling relationship. But you can’t seem to look away.
