“THE ONE”— Falling in Love

“The One”

Falling in Love

Amos Lassen

“The One” is a new romantic comedy about Daniel (Jon Prescott) an investment banker in New York City who is about to get married to the woman of his dreams, Jennifer (Margaret Anne Florence) but then one month before his wedding, meets and falls in love with a very charming man from his past, Tommy (Ian Novick). Daniel met Tommy at a bar and they end up at Tommy’s apartment and have sex while drunk. Daniel denies everything and he tries to forget it all but he thinks about Tommy and Daniel then begins to ask himself questions and realize that he has a very important decision to make.

The interesting thing with this film is that you think you know what is going to happen but there are many surprises. This independent film goes where Hollywood would not dare and the movie is realistic. The characters are like people that we know—those who are not willing to honestly accept themselves.

While I was not expecting this, the acting was very good and the direction by Caytha Jentis is excellent as well. What is so interesting is that even straight men can relate to the gay characters but I have a feeling that this film will not get the exposure that it should.
