I Love You Both


Saturday, Nov. 5 at 6:00pm

This charming first feature by St. Louis native Doug Archibald stars the director and his real-life sibling, Kristin, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Twins Krystal and Donny, now in their late 20s, remain hopelessly codependent, still living together in a converted one-bedroom house. When they both meet and start dating the same guy, however, the twins confront the fact that they can no longer live the same life — a choice needs to be made. With nowhere to turn for advice except their only two friends — a former Tae Bo teacher and their mother — the twins are finally forced to look for answers from within. Toronto Film Scene enthuses: “‘I Love You Both’ hits like a breath of fresh air for the stagnant indie rom-com genre. Relaxed and unforced, Archibald’s material never takes shortcuts or resorts to clichés…. The chemistry between the leads is obviously natural, with a witty rapport that makes the film breeze by at a quick pace. Add in some truly gut-busting moments, and you have a unique, original film that will please both genre fans and those who find romantic comedies and films about siblings to be a pox on independent cinema.”
