Loveseat

By Matthew Richmond | Comedy
A bachelor is forced to get rid of his old treasured couch. Then it comes alive.

Joe is moving in with his girlfriend, taking that next big step for many couples — but this means having to get rid of his old treasured couch, a symbol of his bachelorhood.

When he begins to change his mind about this big commitment, the couch comes alive and takes Joe on a brutally honest journey about himself. The sofa transports Joe to the past, present and future, helping him connect the dots of his life — and see where he’s headed in the future.

The clever premise and nimble writing and performances — including a winning lead role by Matt Jones from “Mom” and “Breaking Bad” and Charlene Amoia from “American Reunion” — are the backbone of this unique high-concept take on the romantic comedy.

Using simple but judicious special effects and puppetry — including the couch (voiced by Josh Haness) and built by master puppeteer Michelle Zamora, who has done work on “Adult Swim” and “The Pee Wee Herman Show” on Broadway — director Matthew Richmond creates a world that is both quotidian and familiar but still hilariously offbeat. With warmth and humor, the film quickly wins over viewers to its central conceit.

“Loveseat” is a fun, charming film about what it means to “adult” and come into your own — and will make you look at home furnishings in an entirely new light.
