Sundance: Romney Big Hit At ‘Mitt’ Premiere In Salt Lake City

What happens when getting away for the weekend to save your marriage could end up destroying it? That’s what Charlie McDowell‘s directorial debut The One I Love explores; the pic , world premieres here Tuesday. “I’ve always loved films that take authentic-feeling characters and put them in a situation that is unusual, bordering on surreal, much like Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze view a relationship,” McDowell told me. “The hope is that this film takes something universal, the complexities of a relationship on the outs, but explores it in a unique and fresh way.” Elisabeth Moss and Sundance staple Mark Duplass star in the Justin Lader-penned pic. Duplass is also in town as an executive producer on the Kristen Wiig-Bill Hader drama The Skeleton Twins that bows today, while Moss co-stars in Listen Up Philip which premieres Monday in the NEXT section. Here’s a clip from The One I Love:
