The Puffy Chair
Appeared at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival
Brothers Mark and Jay Duplass take a cringingly honest, comic look at modern romance in a “charmer [that] wins your heart, even as it’s breaking it” (Austin Chronicle). Dimly aware that his relationship with his long-time squeeze (Kathryn Aselton) may be in trouble, Josh (Mark Duplass, who also scripted), a maturity-phobic slacker, invites her on a road trip with his blissed-out younger brother (Rhett Wilkins) to pick up a used easy chair. Jay Duplass directed this winner of the Emerging Visions Audience Award at the 2005 SXSW Film Festival.
