Suzi Yoonessi, Charlene deGuzman
Drawing on personal experience, lead Charlene deGuzman portrays a quirky and colorful young woman — who happens to be a sex and love addict. After her compulsive behavior spirals out of control, Joy commits to a 12-step program, where she finds a tough-love sponsor (Melissa Leo) and a place to live, as she struggles to get her life back on track. When Joy strikes an unlikely friendship with her musically-talented, reclusive neighbor Jim (John Hawkes), she learns there is more than one way to cope with her self-destructive tendencies. Exchanging her collection of sex toys for a pair of drumsticks, Joy and Jim embark on a musical journey that pushes them to awkwardly confront their individual quirks and excesses. Produced by the Duplass brothers and directed by Suzi Yoonessi, Unlovable, in the guise of a rom-com, uses humor — and great music — to shed light on dealing with addiction and finding companionship through shared hardship. —Avery Davenport
