Editorial Reviews

Laurel (Kazan) has always been the odd wallflower, while her glamorous identical twin, Audrey (Kazan), possesses the confidence and appeal to succeed in the big city. When tragedy strikes and Laurel is mistaken for her twin sister, she makes the impulsive decision to assume her sister's identity and become The Pretty One.

Are there any movies about twins or doppelgangers that aren't creepy in some way? Maybe there are but it's not many, and their explorations of identity usually go down a dark path of ugly self-discovery. Even a sweet and somewhat cutesy rom-com like The Pretty One must overcome a gruesome premise before it heads into the light, but it gets plenty of help by Zoe Kazan's engaging lead performance.

Kazan pulls double-duty as twin sisters Audrey and Laurel. Audrey is "the pretty one"; outgoing, extroverted, glamorous, and living an exciting life in the big city. Laurel is basically her polar opposite; a mousy, poorly-dressed homebody who still lives with their Dad (John Carroll Lynch), helping him paint forgeries of famous paintings. While the sisters have a strong relationship, family gatherings prove awkward, serving to only highlight the vast differences between them. The boy next door, who Laurel has given her virginity to, still has eyes for Audrey. Laurel has resigned herself to a life of taking care of their dad, who has never quite gotten over the death of their mother.

Briefly losing its quirky edges, things get ugly after Audrey decides to rescue Laurel from her dull existence and take her back to the city, which sort of resembles a storybook version of Los Angeles. A make-over attempt goes awry when Laurel, lacking any true identity of her own, seeks out a look perfectly matching Audrey's. And, rather conveniently, it's just then that a terrible car accident kills Audrey, leaving Laurel in a coma. Upon awakening, Laurel learns that everyone thinks she's Audrey. Making the questionable decision to attend her own funeral; the lack of genuine emotion by the handful of attendees (including her father), forces Audrey to take the deception further.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I couldn't let her go" June 3, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is perfect. The female lead is very convincing in her role as the timid sister who hasn't quite found her way. When the unthinkable happens and she loses her twin sister she copes with the grief in a unique way. After taking on her sister's identity she fumbles through the stages of her grief and takes us on her journey. I wasn't sure how I felt about her taking on her sisters identity, but then at one point in the movie she stated: "I couldn't let her go." Imagine looking in the mirror everyday and seeing your dead loved one look back at you. For me, that one line made her actions forgivable. Overall, the movie is sweet, funny, and a must see!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly charming June 2, 2014
Format:DVD
This movie is a sweet, well-acted exploration of identity. Easily passes the Bechdel test and defied my expectations every time I expected it to take a cliched route. Deftly handles family relationships, self-presentation and a really lovely romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 Stars... but I don't hate it August 11, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Clearly a low-budget film but the storyline was still interesting enough to draw me in. In the path of facing the ultimate nightmare of an insensitive world surrounding the 'shy introvert girl' it still sparks a sense of frustration, inner guilt and a little over-the-top narcissism. If you can get past the relatively poor level of production (not an intentional insult to the producers or actors) you might be slightly intrigued - or at least somewhat satisfied with a way to pass the time. The good news is that it features Jake Johnson (New Girl) I don't care who you are that man is charming.

2.0 out of 5 stars really annoyed me and never felt like a real person August 9, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If it wasn't for jake Johnson, I may not have made it through the whole movie. Being a new girl fan, he never disappoints. However the main character, while decently acted, really annoyed me and never felt like a real person. Her insecurities and lack of social skills were almost too over exaggerated. The character development was slow and unfinished, leaving me with so many unanswered questions. I love odd romantic comedies and even more where there's a tragedy to overcome but it was a tough one to enjoy. I was hoping for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshingly new plot line! July 19, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Finally, an original plot line! It was refreshing to watch a movie I didn't feel like I had already seen a hundred times before.

Zoe Kazan's performance as both twins was subtle and convincing in this quirky indie flick.
