Description

In Niclas Larsson’s bold and surreal debut, David (Ewan McGregor), Gruffudd (Rhys Ifans), and Linda (Lara Flynn Boyle) are estranged half-siblings and the children of the titular Mother (Ellen Burstyn) who find themselves emotionally (and physically) pulled to and trapped inside a rundown furniture store when Mother sits down on a couch and refuses to move. Adapted from the Swedish novel Mamma i soffa by Jerker Virdborg, MOTHER, COUCH is an arresting and sneakily rich exploration of the emotional real estate parents and family occupy within our lives. With delirious energy and a winking sense of whimsy, MOTHER, COUCH is a hypnotic visual ride. Film Center exclusive.
