                "The Puffy Chair"--nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards, the John Cassevetes Award and the Someone to Watch Award - is a modern relationship comedy that follows a romantically challenged trio of twentysomethings on a farcical road trip to recover an armchair. Along the way relationships are tested in the context of set pieces like an impromptu wedding, a motel scam gone wrong, and a run-in with a belligerent upholsterer.

                As in their acclaimed short films, one of which won the Berlin Silver Bear Award in 2005, the Duplass Brothers' comically blunt observations about contemporary relationships define their style.
