Watch: 'One and Two' Trailer Introduces Two Kids With a Very Special Ability

Jul 22, 2015

I'm hesitant to even share this trailer for One and Two because the best way to see it is without really knowing anything about it. That's how I came across it at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year, when some friends were raving about it and all they'd say was "It's about two kids with special abilities."

So when Andrew Droz Palermo's movie shows off those "special abilities" for the first time, it came as a pretty big surprise. Admittedly the movie doesn't hide their abilities. They're not some last minute plot twist, they're the entire impetus for the story about two special kids (Kiernan Shipka and Timothee Chalamet) growing up on an isolated farm who start to challenge their overbearing father's control over their lives. But there's definitely a gift in not quite knowing what to expect, and unfortunately if you watch this trailer, it's going to take away a lot of that surprise.

But, it's also a good trailer that shows off one of the more unique, young adult supernatural stories you can see as an alternative to the mega budget Hollywood movies that dominate the landscape. I didn't even love One and Two as much as those who first recommended it to me, but it's hard to deny that it's got a very special quality to it that's worth seeing.
