The members of a dysfunctional family find themselves mysteriously trapped in an antiquated furniture store when their elderly matriarch (Ellen Burstyn) suddenly refuses to get up from one of the display couches. Reluctantly assembled, her three estranged children – David (Ewan McGregor), Gruffudd (Rhys Ifans), and Linda (Lara Flynn Boyle) – must figure out how to escape this bizarre predicament. With the help of the store managers, Marco & Marcus (F. Murray Abraham), and their daughter Bella (Taylor Russell) the siblings embark on a mind-bending odyssey that forces them to face life-altering truths about their own lives and upbringing. Boasting “sensational” performances from an “A-List cast" (Deadline), Mother, Couch marks director Niclas Larsson as "a major new voice breaking through in cinema" (Slash Film).

    "Burstyn delivers one of her finest performances in a career filled with brilliant ones. "Mother, Couch" feels like a major new voice breaking through in cinema, and that's always something to celebrate. McGregor is tasked with holding all the madness together, and his vulnerable, eccentric performance is the beating heart of this wild ride."

    "Burstyn’s performance is worth the price of admission. This 90-year-old acting treasure gets a very strange role to sink her teeth into and goes for the jugular. Sensational."

    "Excellent performances from Ewan McGregor, Ellen Burstyn, Rhys Ifans and Lara Flynn Boyle.... It’s especially rewarding to see Boyle return in her most notable role for years...."

    "MOTHER, COUCH is a boiling point of a picture. Written and directed by Niclas Larsson (and based on Jerker Virdborg’s novel Mamma i soffa), this is an edgy story about small discourtesies and how they sometimes build into something big, nasty, and violent."
    Dan Mecca, The Film Stage
