When I yammered on and on about how much I enjoyed The One I Love when it hit theaters about a month ago, I shared Charlie McDowell's unusual trip to the director's chair for a most unusual indie feature.
214 Radius TWS Charlie McDowell crouches down to go over a The One I Love scene with actor Mark Duplass.
