Dating is hard. Especially these days. Especially when you’re married. Nothing is what appears to be in this short romantic-comedy about two people who find each other on an a very special dating app. You just can’t trust what you read anymore.
"In a social media age where connecting with other people is just a swipe and a scroll away, we feel more disconnected than ever. It’s never been easier than ever to meet somebody new and connect but it’s also never been easier to ghost somebody in our cancel culture. We are afraid of vulnerability, but hungry for human connection and affection, and Sidepiece takes a sly swipe at our swipe-right culture and the real consequences of hiding behind our profile pics and carefully curated online personas." (Teddy Tenenbaum)
