Loveseat

By Matthew Richmond | Comedy
A guy is forced to get rid of his couch before moving in with his girlfriend. But then, the couch starts talking.

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.
