Nasty Baby has certainly been getting some love at LGBT film festivals and awards ceremony, picking up the Teddy Award for the best LGBT-themed film at the Berlin Film Festival, as well as Best Feature at Outfest.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Nasty Baby, centers around a Brooklyn couple, Freddy (Sebastian Silva) and his boyfriend Mo (Tunde Adebimpe) who are trying to have a baby with the help of their best friend, Polly (Kristen Wiig). Freddy is an artist, and his latest work is all about babies – it’s clear he’s dying to be a father. Polly is a family practitioner who is more interested in having a baby than having a man. Mo is hesitant about the entire idea, especially when Polly isn’t having success with Freddy?s sperm and the donor responsibility shifts to him.
‘Set almost entirely in the multicultural vibrancy of Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the trio navigates the idea of creating life, when they are confronted by unexpected harassment from particularly aggressive neighborhood man, nicknamed The Bishop (Reg E. Cathey). The Bishop is bothersome in small, yet persistent ways, with a hint of danger. As their clashes become increasingly aggressive, someone is bound to get hurt.’
Nasty Baby will recieve a limited theatrical release in the US on October 23rd, before reaching VOD and iTunes on October 30th. It’s not clear when it will arrive in the UK. [Read more…]
