About “The One Who Loves You”
“The One Who Loves You” is an American independent film that recreates the South of the 1970s, bringing this time and place vividly to life through a potent down-home soundtrack and unforgettable characters, while paying homage to the stripped-down, raw style of films from that period such as The Last Picture Show and Nashville.
It’s 1974. Gloria Bethune faces a bleak existence when she retreats to her small hometown after failing as a singer in New York. She falls for a grifter who claims to be the former manager of a famous Country singer. Through this flawed man’s apparent faith in her, Gloria’s passion for singing is reborn, but she is pushed into uncharted territory.
